Bill Roberts: Old MAG-10 and 4-AD-EC



I found some 2004 MAG-10 destroyer (420 capsules) and 4-AD-EC (also 420 capsules) bottles in storage from our last move into our present home in 2004. Problem: they have definitely NOT been frozen or refrigerated and have endured the ravages of varying temperatures within the confines of my wonderful large garage. The temps in there over the years ranged from hot (90 degrees) to cold (about 40 degrees). Can't believe I had forgotten I had them. 10 whole years.

Question: are they even remotely safe to use? I'm pretty skeptical, but before throwing them out, I decided to ask just in case. I think I recall reading that the 4-AD-EC could convert into something else over time, especially under higher temps...
