This past weekend I purchased a case of Pepsi and Mountain Dew! We had some of both in a cooler w/ice to keep cold.

As they were drank we proceeded to replace so drinks would stay cold and ready to drink. We attempted to replace in cooler as I said, at this time 1 of the cans literally exploded in my granddaughters hand! I have said can. After this happened she (20yrs old) attempted just to open 1 to pour over ice and at this time the pop top exploded outward.

I have this can also. Had this been a younger child there could have been severe damages. They were purchased at Walgreens in Vero Beach Fla. At the corner of 58th and Highway 60(20th St).

The info on the carton case is (Feb 15 16) and the number under that was(1007E505155) and the proof of purchase number is (1200080994).I do hope your complaint department realizes how dangerous this misshape could have been had it not been a young adult opening these cans. My name is Brenda McKinney. I would appreciate some form of acknowledgement to this complaint. My address is 7000 20th ST Lot 986 Vero Beach Fla 32966.

My e-mail is brendamckinney46@yahoo.com. Thank you for your time and as I said I have BOTH cans to back up this complaint.

I do hope I hear from a Pepsi rep. Being 63yrs old don't want to stop drinking my DOC!

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Just had a can explode like a dang gun shot. Made me jump and do a body scan.

Cut my thumb. Sept 17, 2019.

I took pics and saved the can. Now I'm afraid to open the rest of a dang 36 pack.

Got a can of diet pepsi that I left on the floor. I opened it later like any other can and it made a loud gunshot sound.

When I opened my eyes I saw myself falling through the quantum realm with ant-man. We both shared extremely surprised looks until he attached something on me and I expanded back into my computer chair.

My ears are ringing and the top of the soda can is ripped open and tab is missing somewhere. I think antman took it.

Same thing just happened to me in Summerville SC. Pepsi pop top can barcode: 12000 16313 just went off in my hand like a gun shot. The force hurt my hand, hand still sore and the sound scared the *** out of my wife.

Just opened a can of Pepsi Cola made with Real Sugar to pour over ice and it sounded like a gun shot. The can of Pepsi Cola was stored at room temperature.

The lid popped out and felt as though it cut the palm of my hand, but it did not. Scared the crap out of me! Bar code serial number is 1200003067.

And the code on the bottom of the can is FEB 20, 1309AW051792. I have nine cans left.

Just had this happen. Last soda in the twelve pack.

Soda has been kept in 74-78 degree house and never shaken. Tried to pop the top and tab twisted so I thought no biggie and used a small rock that my daughter had brought into the house to push the top in. Top opened and it sounded like I shot a small pistol in my living room. When this happened the twisted pull tab shot off so hard and fast that it hit the ceiling and bounced across the room.

Scared the *** out of me. Funny thing is that soda bubbled up but not even a drop came over the edge on the top of the can. Ive opened pressurized cans in the past but never had one explode with the force to shoot the tab into the ceiling. Could have lost an eye if it shot outwards instead of upwards.

I realize it was my fault for opening it like this but jesus, Ive never seen one do this, just open and spew soda all over the place. Think Pepsi has an issue witgh over-pressurization that needs to be addressed

06/29/2019 Chilled can of Pepsi One violently exploded when opening. Chilling and drinking soda for many years and never had an incident like this.

Continuing to clean the huge mess in my apartment, have to shampoo rugs and sofa, the Pepsi spray from the explosion is everywhere- ceiling, sofa, floors, electronics!

Could have been so much worse if I was holding the can close to my face. Am shaken up by this assault in my home and will be contacting Pepsi Monday morning with a complaint and to seek compensation for my trouble.

This just happened to my husband on a Pepsi can. We are in Washington state.

Very dangerous he was almost cut by the tab popping outward. The soda was in our house and climate controlled.
