I do stuff like that. I’ve traveled enough that I have eaten some pretty foul stuff in my lifetime. A canned item with the seal unbroken and no visible or olfactory signs of being off? Fairly low risk. For me, anyway.
My GF, on the other hand, is religious about tossing just about everything out of date except old spices, which is the one thing I wish she did throw away.
Obviously you need to take a hefty shot of liquor after each bite to kill off any bad juju.
