Infusion set Exp. Dates

Sooo, I am just wondering how important it is to dispose of expired infusion sets. I recently cleaned and re-organized my diabetes supply cabinet and found several boxes and random singles of expired infusion sets. Some of them expired in 2003-05 others 2011 and 2012. Just wondering if I should throw them away or if they are still usable. Non of them have been opened, except for 1 I had to see if the cannula or plastic deteriorated, which it didn't. Any thoughts?See More
