Abstract : This is the final summary report in a study of the stability of representative types of Civil Defense shelter foods and their containers when stored for extended periods. The purpose of the study was to maintain controlled storage conditions covering the range of conditions likely to exist in warehouses and shelters in which, beginning in 1962, large quantities of food were stored under the Civil Defense Program. These included types of food not previously procured, representing new formulations, processes and containers on which little or no long-term storage information was available. During the course of the study, samples of rations were drawn from various established shelters and storage depots for comparisons with the items held in controlled storage. (Author)
