Was it left in a hot car or other vehicle? It is a wax, and these days have been quite hot.

Yes, what was the temp when the pix was taken?

Put it in the fridge over night and reexamine. :cool:

I thought about the fridge but decided to take it back. Glad i did, Lowes had about 20 can on the shelf and i had to hunt for one that was solid. Took my screwdriver to open before hand! Haha

I guess in this case you cant judge a book by its cover, open your new can of Johnson paste wax before purchasing. Both are new from the same shelf at Lowes.ImageImage
