Oil Drum

The plaintiff’s husband was working with another employee in an attempt to remove the top of a 55-gallon drum which they believed contained a nonflammable cleaner. The workers were using a blow torch when the drum, which actually contained a flammable construction sealer, exploded. Both were severely burned and, later, both men died as a result of their injuries. The drum bore no label bearing either warnings or instructions.
