    The combination of citric and carbonic acids will, eventually, eat through the can enough to make them burst.
    Do you have to clean them out after you drain them?

    Re: 2011 NC Coke cans Warning

    Thank you for the heads up. I checked all my cans and one of them had leaked all over a bookshelf (ruining only one book, thank god... it could have been much, much worse.
    I have now placed all my cans in a closet with plastic bags over them.

    Guys and Gals - be sure if you have cans you actually pick them up and inspect --- at first glance, all appeared "normal", but when I looked closer - one of the cans had sprung a leak and a big mess.

    Yeah, I run a little water through them to "rinse" them out.


    It's a bit of a time consuming process, dealing with such small holes, but it's well worth it not having any of them burst and I much prefer that method of draining to popping the top.

    I work for The Coca-Cola Company here in Atlanta so I can give a little advice. The acid will eventually eat away at the can so it's best to shake the cans around from time to time.

    Wouldn't shaking the can create more pressure, causing a weak can to blow?

    Not the quoted poster but, yes, it very well could - especially if the cans have already been sitting for quite some time.

    Sorry, I meant to swish the can around from time to time to keep the acid from settling. Don't shake it with everything you have A lot of people here have collectible cans on their desks and they will punch a tiny hole in the bottom as one of the other posters mentioned.

    Did they blow up or expire? They weren't supposed to expire until January when the "15" versions come out.

    Funny...I've got a six-pack from the 2009 championship and they haven't leaked at all.
