I bought a new can of Crisco and used it once. When I opened the lid to use it again their was a puddle of oil in it. Having never experienced this before I called the company to complain. I was told this is called honeycombing and it is not the quality they are looking for in their product. It was still fine to use, and they sent me coupons to more than cover the cost of the can.
Wow, that's interesting. Thanks for sharing! it happened to me once, so I threw it out!
