Just so you know, it is impossible to have mold, fungus, or any organism inside the can if there is no leakage. Most leakage occur at the seal area. So if you see a dented seal can, do not pick up. If you drop the can and dented the seal, keep them in the fridge, open right away to consume or you can waste for 2-3 days to see if swell. If after 14 days, it shows no sign of swelling then no leakage.

 

Most canned seafood available on the market are through high heat sterilization which nothing can survive inside the can. Therefore, you most likely will not get sick due to bacteria (except if it's poison which heat cannot eliminate). Once the sterilization is completed, these cans must be left alone to cool down for proper cooling. From here, time inside the can basically stop. Nothing will grow inside or degrade, if kept properly away from sunlight.

 

I hope this help.

The OP hasn't replied to this thread since 2008 so I'm assuming he didn't survive the smoked oyster incident.
