i had to work last weekend so i decided to eat some mre at work.


because to this i was on saturday morning the last time in my basement, everything was ok at this time when i filled up my backbag with mre.

today i asked my wife to bring something from the basement, although we are 10 years married she went there to do :mrgreen:

but then she called me to look what happened :(

Did the can explode from sitting too long or did your wife drop the can by mistake?

The "pull off" parts are simply pressed into the metal (those parts are simply very thin)
your can might have had a leak.

(or it was pressed to deep, or it simply had somesort of a shock and cracked)

Result is oxygen entering the food, leaving you with fungus or bacteria growth, pressing the can open (the cheeseburger actually grows.. :mrgreen: how interesting is that)

You actually see this happening a lot, it's actually a common ration problem.
That's also the reason why I don't buy issued rations (dented cans) with pull lids.
If they are not dented there is nothing wrong (99.9%) with the cans.

Yours might be dropped during it's life in the factory or supermarket, or accidentally during shopping.
With a bit of bad luck a small "tic" can already cause these kind of problems.
The cans are vacuum (it's filled when it's hot) and can be checked by tapping on it. When it isn't vacuum anymore you will hear a change in sound compared with the vacuum ones (can't describe the sound, but it sounds a bit "deeper").

:mrgreen: Und warum rede ich eigentlich Englisch mit ein Deutscher?
(for the English speaking people; why am I speaking english with a German?)

:mrgreen: it's OK, the Dutch people are always stupid enough to learn foreign languages and ALWAYS try to speak the other language when theyre on vacation :D

Never saw a frenchman speak Dutch
Never saw a german speak Dutch
Never saw an american speak Dutch

But..

You always see the Dutch guy speak French, German and English :mrgreen:

But it just seemed a bit ironic :mrgreen:
