    I made some 3 days ago, and it is still in a sealed container---how long will it last?

    3-4 days I'd say. Should be fine, as long as you heat it well and it smells okay.

    If your pregnant, I would be weary of possible listeria monocytogenes that can grow in seafood. Tuna is normally kept in room temperature (canned tuna). If some mutant strain of listeria survived the canning process and you ended up refrigerating the tuna, you could possibly be creating an suitable environment for growth and that would suck. Worst case, you run a high fever but you could loose your baby, that is if your pregnant, ;)

    I thought the big concern with tuna was mercury, not listeriosis?

    Either way...if it smells ok, it's probably ok.

    i would say,from experience,5 days max!

    warm it up on the stove,in a fire resitant pan,not the plastic container,lol

    add some louisana hot sauce, it will kill any germs, not killed by the heat,;)
    and then you will have Cajun casserole!

    that too, ;)

    actually, I would probably be more concerned with botulinium when it comes down to canend tuna. mutant listeria is hard to find.

    I made tuna casserole about eight months ago. It's in my fridge, still alive and growing.

    Smell it first.

    Just to be on the safe side, 3 days if it's been properly refrigerated.
