The other day I was making chili and I opened two cans of Hunt's diced tomatoes. One opened normally, but one opened with a loud POP! and there was about an inch of airspace at the top of the can. I was working fast, and I threw it in the chili without thinking -- until later. I started wondering if it was safe and if I should throw out the chili (which I certainly didn't want to do!)

So I called Hunt's customer service number and got a very nice lady. She asked for the codes on the can and then told me that if the product looked and smelled fresh and the can was undamaged, it was safe -- that the "canned air" wouldn't be harmful. Then she said she would be sending me a coupon. It came on Saturday -- any Hunt's product free. That was a nice bonus, as I wasn't looking for compensation, just information.

Anyway, we ate the chili and nobody died!

    You got some good customer service. That airspace would concern me too!

    No more dangerous than the "air space" between my job Hunts
