Are canned goods muktzeh?


A can which is sealed, such that opening it on Shabbat would be prohibited, is still not muktzeh. The contents are not "useless"; there are circumstances in which one could ask a non-Jew to open it, and the contents would be permitted for a Jew.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:22:24)

Have a great day,
