I would go so far to say that home canning poses a greater risk to spoilage than commercially canned food. People take too many shortcuts and quality control along with proper sanitation.
Don't confuse the best use by freshness date with the food going bad.
Well, when I went back through my list, the items I was thinking about, some canned hams and some canned seafood actually were classified as 'semi-perishable'. So, yes, I'll agree with you for now. But will continue checking.
