Have you ever had a Rattrays tin expand? I only have 20 or so, and I've not had this happen. I've heard one person report a C&D tin expanding, but then they said it was moldy. Only a few of my GLP tins have expanded, and not all of the same blend, like maybe just two of my Embarcaderos, not all of them. I do mostly have C&D tins, none expanded, and I have a pretty good variety of those. None of my McClellands have ever expanded.Perhaps because the flat tins have the oxygen removed and vacuum sealed during the canning, and the pop tops do not (hence the reason GLP, C&d, and rattray's tins expand. Different type of aging going on
The report of Rattrays expanding baffles me most, because they are paper sided tins.
