Throw Out These Old Cans Of Pam Right Away
Pam Cooking Spray is a common item found in most kitchens, but you want to double-check to make sure you don't have this particular kind of Pam in your pantry.
Eight people are suing Pam's parent company Conagra, after they say they were injured and/or disfigured when cans of the popular cooking spray exploded, according to USA Today.
Lifehacker reports, "Conagra removed the can from “active production earlier this year, three years after introducing it.” Conagra has not issued a recall on the old design, and maintains that “when Pam is used correctly, as instructed, it is a 100% safe and effective product.”
Conagra said that all Pam Cooking Sprays include clear instructions for use, and that it "shouldn't be left on a stove or near a heat source, sprayed near an open flame or stored above 120°F."
USA Today says that the cans in question were produced in 2011, and are no longer in production. However, it's probably a good idea to toss any old cans of Pam just to be safe.
