Can I store canned food leftovers in the refrigerator right in the can? 

Canned food, once opened, should be transferred to a glass or plastic container. You won't get sick from food stored in an open can, but the food won't taste or look as good.

For more information on storing leftovers, see Love Your Leftovers.
