Same reason ammo manufacturers won't make powder that has a time limit on it, as was suggested by some idiot legislators.Find this too hard to believe. They would be opening themselves up to HUGE law suits if someone got sick from eating something from a jar which had unsealed because they had made the lid to do so.
I hope it's not true, but there was a thread on here a few weeks ago about how the silver canning lids weren't sealing reliably. I find it believable that they've cheapened the lids, even if they didn't plan for them to unseal in a year.Find this too hard to believe. They would be opening themselves up to HUGE law suits if someone got sick from eating something from a jar which had unsealed because they had made the lid to do so.
This is a nightmare-Please keep us updated!up at countryside site, under tight wad tips, there is a video abut the new lids made by ball and kerr....the seal will only last a year.....check this out is not good news for us preppers....kerr and ball need to hear from all of us...
Yes. as DBA said it is not recomended. But in an emergency, I also save them, takeing them off carefully. Boil in water with bakeing soda to "fluff" the rubber just a bit. I have done this just for test. In the 70's there was a shortage on lids, we did all kinds of things to reuse.I saved all the lids from my Ball jars last year. I thought I could just reuse them?
Because that would meen any food we put up would go bad when the seal fails after a year. Most of us that cann have alot of jars that contain food over 1 year old. It is still good for many years as long as it stays sealed and kept properly.So..if you can only use them once anyway then whats the big deal about them saying that about the new lids?
