Tips
  • Do not store in opened metal can — refrigerate in covered glass or plastic container after opening.
  • Keep olives submerged in brine after opening.
  • Storage time shown is for best quality only — after that, the olives' texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, they will still be safe to consume if they have been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • If olives develop an off odor, flavor or appearance, they should be discarded for quality purposes; if mold appears, discard the entire product.
  • “Best By,” “Best if Used By,” and “Use By” dates on commercially packaged foods sold in the United States represent the manufacturer's estimate of how long the product will remain at peak quality — in most cases, the olives will still be safe to consume after that date, as long as they have been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
