A woman has woken up to find a can of baked beans had exploded in her pantry, leaving a ‘vomit’ smell throughout her kitchen.
Elisabeth Billington, from Queensland, purchased the home brand can of beans from Coles before it exploded overnight.
The mother posted photos of the bean explosion inside her cupboard to the supermarket giant’s Facebook on Sunday.
‘Whilst preparing dinner tonight we heard a bang inside our pantry,’ she said.

‘Upon inspection, we found a can of baked beans had exploded. We purchased these two tins of Coles baked beans just yesterday.
‘The smell coming from the beans was putrid, it smelled nothing like baked beans, instead it smelled like vomit,’ she said.
Despite the beans not expiring until 2021, Ms Billington claimed the contents of the tin was ‘clearly rancid’.
She said it was lucky no one was hurt by the exploding tin can.
‘Wow. Under other circumstances, that could’ve been a cool thing to see. At least nobody got hurt,’ a horrified shopper wrote.
A Coles spokesperson commented on Ms Billington’s post and offered an apology.
‘This is concerning to see and we appreciate you bringing this to our attention,’ they responded.
‘So that we may follow this up, can you please send us a private message with some more details including the store you purchased this from and images of the packaging details including best before dates and any batch details printed on the can?’
