Rudimentary, my dear Watson! So late after the invention of the product with no public health in mind….How in the world got such infested design get approved, without a seal, to protect the top, from contamination, re-contamination, cross-contamination? The same for twist-to-open “bear” type caps, and the contamination deposited under between the cap and the bottle.
Great reminder, thank you!

MIAMI (CBS4) – Pop the top of your favorite soda and you can expect to find carbonated water, sugar, even a little sodium. But look closer. Could you also find some Bacillus? How about a splash of Staphylococcus?
CBS4 Investigates discovered nearly a dozen different germs lurking on the tops of 20-soda cans during a random test. We checked out groceries, gas stations, restaurants, universities and vending machines. We found this soda can in a Doral gas station with dark soot on the top.
“I really wasn’t expecting these to be as bad as they actually are, considering the sources they came from,” said Karen Deiss a Microbiologist. She showed us the black furry mold that was hiding on this can from a store.
