They have recovered canned foods from sunken WWII subs/boats which at over 60 years old the food stuffs tested negative for any sort of harmful bacteria...

Now...how it might taste is another story

Like Smith, my wife and I recently ate some canned pears from 97 or 98...they were canned with cinnamon and honestly were delicious.
