Can You Spot the $11.2 Million Mistake on This Can?

I must start out by apologizing to you, as the title of this article is actually not true. The mistake on the can of Canada Dry ginger ale in the photograph — one of millions of similar cans — will cost the company which manufactures the product significantly more than $11.2 million.

Can you correctly spot the costly mistake on the can, which I obtained during my recent travels?


The only times I drink carbonated beverages is at lunch and dinner — and even then, rarely more than 12 fluid ounces — but I have been drinking significantly more water lately during those meals.

Still — whether I am in a restaurant or aboard an airplane — I do like to occasionally drink ginger ale. I find it especially useful and soothing for issues pertaining to the stomach — although I thankfully have not suffered from those types of issues in years.

About all you can win with this contest is useless bragging rights; so I again apologize to you, as no real prize is being offered — and please refer to this article with details about this mistake.

    The can doesn’t advise one to save their receipt for six years in case of a class-action lawsuit…

      You do not need a receipt, Andrew.

      Stay tuned for details — but do not expect to become wealthy…

    I am guessing that the 100% Natural Flavors is false and misleading.

    The map is of the United States and not Canada.
