I have no idea what you are referring to. I haven't noticed a change in the holes in my drinks cans.

Have you changed the brand that you buy?

Aren't you more worried about the rat piss OP?

I only recently found out that the hole on the ring pull is for putting a straw in.

I have a Soda Stream. No rat piss, no waste, no hole issues. Just the worrying politics.

I love my soda stream but it's a bit heavy to put in my handbag in case I fancy a drink while out and about ��

People used to say that when tested, 99% of drinks cans had rat piss on them from being stored in the warehouse, so you were drinking it

And everyone who drank a can of drink DIED from rat piss poisoning. FACT.

I remember back in the day of the ring pulls that pulled right off I would drop the ring pull in the can until someone told me that someone accidentally swallowed the ring pull and DIED.

YANBU, op. I think it's a worldwide conspiracy by the wide-mouthed frogs. The hoppy little bastards.

Ewww thanks for that info.
Didn't know about the stew thing either

Pipbin Sat 10-May-14 17:59:26

Ewww thanks for that info.

It's not true. And even if it were it's clearly not a problem due to the number of people who have drunk from cans and not been ill. If 99% of cans had rat wee on them, and it was a problem then 99% of people who had ever had a can of drink would be ill. They aren't so it isn't.
