Having purchased official military MRE's in the past I'm very familier with their packaging and storage.

Untampered boxes of MRE's should have:
2 polypropylene heat sealed bands strapped around the box.
This is to indicate if the box had been opened and/or tampered with
A 60 month "Inspect by" date stamped on the outside of the box.
Factory sealed box flaps.

The box I received from had been previously opened, poorly resealed and had all of the date-critical information cut and peeled off the outside of the box.

At this point I have no idea how old these MRE's really are, when they should be inspected or even if they are still safe to eat.

UPDATE: I was contacted by the vendor selling this product via email. To me their communication was hostile, condesending and attempted tp put the blame on the customer.

------------- Begin message -------------

we do not open these cartons of mre's-you should not have accepted these if you thought they had been open-you should have been suspicious because these have been opened!!!you might contact your local ups terminal and make a complaint.

------------- End message -------------

My response was:
Unfortunately I was not the one to accept the package, it was delivered to my place of employment and was accepted by the site mailroom attendant.

Furthermore, the mailroom attendant had no idea what was in the box, whether or not the box contained the original contents or if the shipper had simply recycled an existing box as many organizations do.

I will never deal with this seller again.

There are a few things to know about these and all other 'Military' MRE meals. First off, the true 'MRE' meals provided by the military are supplied 12-meals to a box, the same ones these are coming in, but they have two banding straps that seal the box, and on the outside of the box, there is a 'REINSPECT BY' date that is 3-years from the date of packing.

The next thing to know is that MRE Military meals are considered a 'non-restockable item'. That means, when troops go to the field in the States, or when their unit is issued MRE's in combat, those not used cannot be 'placed back into the stock system'. In other words, eat them, or dispose of them. This is to ensure that if they were left out in the sun, cooked out of their minds for days, that potentially bad ones aren't put back into the stock system for someone else to draw and get sick from.

Third, there are different color individual meal bags. Yellow are NATO civilian 'humanity rations', the tan ones are Military Issue, and there is a blue one that the UN used to draw. There are also colors for vegetarian issue.

This all said, I have eaten MANY MRE's, both in the Marines, and as a civilian. Unless can see the reinspect date, or I know the stocking and handling protocols of where they came from, I would be cautious of buying 'Military MRE's'. The biggest issue being that most 'surplus' MRE's that you are bidding on now are actually individual returns from 'non-restocks' from Reserve units that returned from overseas where they have old MRE's they can't issue, or that sat in the field too long. Just like old worn sleeping bags or dented gas cans, you are basically taking 'discarded food stocks'.

The box was damaged upon arrival. The bags were not vaccume sealed like they are supposed to be, I threw most of them away because the food safety was compromised. For the price you would thing they would take more care in getting you the quality you paid for and deserve.

I'm happy with the purchase - It arrived with about 3 years and 4 months shelf life left on the box. The box was sealed and has the two straps securing the outside intact. Its a tradeoff for these vs other options that you can get that are almost brand new. These are surplus - so they've been in the field then sold to surplus dealers since they cannot be restocked once they leave the warehouse (due to lack of control for temperature / handling, etc). Being an ex service member, the reality of it is that these are just fine for 4+ years.

That said, please take some advice.

On Amazon, these are a cheaper option, and I think if you're buying them for more immediate term coverage then you're good. If you want something that will have the longest shelf life possible and is of a known quality then you're probably better off buying the ones made for civilian distribution - they're shipped direct from the factory and most of them have 4+ shelf years left on them. (see my other reviews for these)

For my need - throwing a few meals in the Jeep that will be eaten sometime over the next 3-6 months after serving as a back up plan just in case I get stranded - they're perfect. If you're buying these for disaster preparedness you probably should spend a few extra dollars and get something that's of a known quality and history.
