Return your can or you might get Tango'd - Yahoo! News:

LONDON (Reuters) - Drinks company Britvic said on Friday it was recalling thousands of cans of Tango soft drink because of concerns they might explode.

The company, which uses TV adverts featuring people getting drenched in soft drink with the catchphrase "You know when you've been Tango'd," said the "precautionary measure" came after a small number of complaints about cans bursting.

"Although not unsafe to drink, the products could contain a naturally-occurring yeast, which over an extended storage period might generate a build up of carbon dioxide that could distort or burst the packaging," the firm said in a statement.

You want a refund on your drink just because it might explode a little? Get out of my bar. Try that fern-and-chrome tourist trap over on Elder and Wood, where you can get your drinks with the little umbrellas in them.
