I have a packet of short grain rice and has been kept at my house for more than 4 years, it kinda disappeared... and now it is back. The rice color now turns grayish, and my father nags at me and wants me to use them all up saying it does not expire. But I doubt that... So anyone tell me if rice ever expires? If it does I am gonna throw it away, if not someone might use it and get food poisoning thanks...

Eat it. If you get sick. It probably does expire. If you dont get sick, then I guess it doesnt.

Don't throw away rice. Did you know that rice is exspensive (sp) now?

You should have ate it years ago.

smell it, and compare the smell to new rice. Rice can go bad in months or last years dependant on how its been stored. If you really want peace of mind cook a little and see how it turns out. I'm pretty sure it wouldnt give you food poisoning either way.

It grows molds considering it's an organic product. Eat it, and your a step short to death.

Don't throw it away. Let your father eat it. If he doesn't get sick, Something is wrong.
Rice is indeed very expensive now but I won't eat gray rice for that.

Throw it away, it's no good anymore. It's just like fruits(i think). They rot
