My hubby was supposed to take groceries for me from our house to my parent's.... and it seems he's left it in his car all week. It's just cans of evaporated and condensed milk - I'm trying to make a tres leches cake for the first time. Do you think it's still okay to use? The weather here has been mostly rainy - but we have had one - two warmer days (like mid to high 70's)

Can I use it? I'm assuming it would normally travel by truck in all kinds of weather anyway..... maybe it's still ok?

Geesh, I would think it owuld be fine.... like you say....... how long do they travel in those trucks, or sit in store rooms all over the country ?

It is fine as long as the cans are not open, dented or bulging. The cans in cases are left in hot warehouse and unrefridgerated trucks for weeks / months.

It is one thing if it was a previously refridgerated item. You are fine.

I would think you should be fine. I am sure they are stocked in a wharehouse somewhere. If anything, when you open the cans, test them (smell them and take a little taste). I don't think it will hurt them though.
