Can foods processed at one elevation be safely moved to another elevation?
Canned foods that were properly processed at one elevation may be safely moved to another elevation, higher or lower. If a good vacuum was not achieved in the canning process, those with weak seals may come unsealed when moved to a higher elevation. If jars do become unsealed, discard the contents.
