Do MREs never expire
MRE manufacturers don’t use expiration dates in the traditional sense of a day, month, and year. But that doesn’t mean that MREs are some sort of immortal food that never goes bad. Eventually, they do expire. The answer to how long your MRE will last in storage largely depends on the temperature at which you store it.

- White Vinegar.
- Vanilla Extract.
- Dried Beans.
How long will MRE last
