Exclamation Re: Grocery Shopping Tips

While those dented cans and battered boxes may tempt you with extra savings over their intact counterparts, approach them with caution. A badly dented can may have damage to the inner liner that protects the food from coming in contact with the metal can itself; some cans may be bulged or popped open from the impact. Don't buy those at any price.

And a ripped-open box may have suffered damage to the inner packaging that could compromise the freshness and/or safety of the product inside.
