I dropped a fridge pack on a cement sidewalk.
Four cans got their bottoms punched out.
Are these cans ok to drink? I appreciate your help. I feel like a moron for not knowing this.

So the bottom of the can look like a bubble?

Their fine, just be careful opening the can, the soda will come out really fast!!!

Thanks Jmyjunk.
I appreciate your feedback.
I'll open those cans in my kitchen sink.
I can now rest a little.

I'm happy to report I had no problem with those punched out cans. I did open them over my kitchen sink and I gave the top of the can a few gentle thumb thumps. (Old wise tale or not I have done this for years.)

Of course I had a hard time getting the cans to sit on my computer table so I used some duck tape top adhere them down. < NOT just a joke.>

I had a strange situation with "punched out cans". Last week I bought a 12 pack of Dr Pepper and found that one can had a "punched out" bottom. This week in a different store in a different part of the state I bought a 12 pack of Dr Pepper and found the same deal.
