This canned turkey is packed the old-fashioned way, like home canning. Meat is added into the can with a dash of sea salt, then slow cooked. Water is never added!
Helpful Hint: When you open the can, you'll see liquid and juices from the meat. For best flavor, let the meat soak in (and re-absorb) the liquids before using.
IMPORTANT PRODUCT INFORMATION: The shelf life of meat is 5 years from the date on the can.
The manufacture date is the top line on the bottom of the can:
- The first alpha character denotes the type of meat: B=beef, C=chicken, T=turkey, P=pork.
- The first numeral after the alpha denotes the last number of production year: 9 = 2009, 0=2010, etc.
- The remaining digits are the day of the year according to the Julian calendar: Day 1 = January 1st, Day 365 = December 31st.
