I do not like this can of pam.
I do not like when can goes bam.

I would not spray it for a joke,
I would not spray it in my coke.

I will not spritz it around this place,
I will not spritz it on your face.

I do not like this can of pam.
I do not like when pam is damned.

"leading the vents to open and release the highly flammable propellant, a combination of butane and propane"

Simple, just don't use this cooking spray in an environment with uncovered heat sources or open flame...

Which is probably clearly stated on the side of the can.

Also, in other news, a lot of consumer spray products use butane and propane as the propellants. They don't put the mercaptan odorant into them.

Seems like some of the story is missing? Sounds like the can went bam because it got too hot? What IS supposed to happen in that case? Sounds like it vented rather than exploding? Again, what is it supposed to do, just hold it in until it really blows? Or is it supposed to vent first as a safety? So is it a bad design, or are they saying that they should be using non flammable propellants for this? But wouldn't an oil mist from an explosion still be explosive? It is definitely horrible that the guy got hurt, but what could have been done with the design, I mean it is a can of oil.

That sucks.  Regardless wearing t shirt and shorts as a cook is probably inadvisable.

Every kitchen I've ever worked in has had "spray oil" or whatever. Not ever used in actual cooking, but used to light a burner that had a pilot out. Literally that's it, used as a propellant to light a burner.

I was wondering if he set it on the grill.

I was looking at something yesterday and there was a can of KAM which apparently is a canned ham.  The design of the logo for KAM was pretty much exactly like SPAM from what I could tell.  When I googled it I wasn't able to figure out what KAM is.  Wikipedia says SPAM is sold throughout North America and KAM isn't something sold in some other place so I don't have any idea.  Help?
