Can food be re-canned if the lid does not seal?

Rating: 80

Canned food can safely be recanned if the unsealed jar is discovered within 24 hours. To re-can, remove the lid and check the jar sealing surface for tiny nicks. Change the jar; if necessary, add a new treated lid and reprocess using the same processing time. Source: Original FAQ posted at http://128.192.83.157/faq/FAQ_home.php
