What are the odd sprouts at the ends of them? Exp date is good.
I've seen this frequently now. I usually just cut off the ends and eat it anyway.

The opening up is not really a sign of spoilage. With Asparagus, what we are eating is really only the sprout. The actual plant if allowed to grow is a branched plant like a fern. They canned some that were starting to open up, a bit older than really should be picked.
So yes, the entire asparagus is safe to eat.
