This is additional information regarding incident report #20150419-8B303-2147433615.

Subsequent to filing the report, I went to use one of the gasoline cans and, as I pulled the spout from the can, the spout stopper came loose and fell inside the can. I am unable to remove the stopper unless I dump all of the gasoline. Obviously, the stopper is useless for the next month or so while I'm using up the gasoline in the can.
