I was just getting ready to make some spaghetti sauce, and as I opened the can of tomato paste, a jet of the paste squirted out at high pressure. It shot a good 10 ft.
Is this a sign of spoilage?
I thought canned foods only spoil if the seal is broken. In this case, the seal must've been in place for the can to have such high pressure.
The tomato paste smells ok. But I don't want to die from botulism.
Should I eat it?
