Hmmm, i wonder if they ran into a bad lot of food? I know some of the milk shakes (and a few other drink packets) had e-coli contamination associated with certain batches.

Other than that, those MRE's should be just like eating canned food meaning as long as the packet isn't busted/damaged to allow contamination, the heat may have destroyed some amount of the nutrients but it shouldn't make you sick.
