PARIS (AP) — French authorities are investigating the death of a fitness blogger reportedly hit by an exploding whipped cream canister that was withdrawn from the market in 2013, officials and the company that makes the product said Thursday.
The prosecutor's office in the eastern city of Mulhouse said an investigation is underway into Sunday's death of Rebecca Burger and whether a faulty siphon on a high-pressure canister used to make and dispense whipped cream was at fault. The prosecutor would not comment pending further investigation.
Consumer magazine 60 Million Consumers reported that the exploding canister hit Burger violently in the chest, causing her to suffer a heart attack. The magazine said it had been warning for years of such risks after dozens of incidents, but this was apparently the first death reported.

Канистра - громкое слово. Там баллон такой на, пардон за тавтологию, балончиках со сжатым газом. Подобные девайсы, только для газировки были популярны в начале девяностых. А тут удумали взбитые сливки так раздавать. В принципе, конструкция довольно неблагонадежная. Или балончик пиздануть может, или сама емкость.
