  1. Per Del Monte a 15-degree change reduces expected shelf life by 50% (ideal temp is 65; if stored at 80

    65 is ideal? Seriously? They expect us to stick the cans in the ‘fridge?

    @Rectilinear Propagation: Uh, 68-72 is room temperature. Most fridges keep temperatures between 34 and 40 (mine is a steady 36).

    so no, they don’t expect you to keep it in the fridge, just in a strongly-air conditioned room, which most supermarkets are.
