I just want to pass this onto others, concerning the safety of some plastic containers. I have noticed in the past that some containers were very flimsy, and it came to fruition recently. My wife was going to pour canola oil into a frying pan when the container became very flexible in her hand, slipped and spilled oil over the stove top. At the least it caused a great inconvenience with an oily mess to clean up.
It was fortunate that we have an electric stove and no open flame. If it had been a natural gas stove, I am not so sure of the outcome, as some of the oil ran down the side of the stove and onto the floor.
I realize it is beneficial to reduce product costs during these economic times. The product container appears to be stable when first picked up and handled, although it is obvious that the container material is thinner. I do believe the serious problem arises when the cap is removed and the container has a tendency to collapse due to lack of rigidity of the plastic material. Using two hands may solve this problem, but is that the answer?
I have noticed similar problems with different companies and products.
