As I attempted to spray my under-arms with a freshly opened, previously UNUSED/new Idelle Labs Ltd. 6 oz. Net Weight pressurized aerosol spray canister of "The Essence of Man" BRUT Classic Scent anti-perspirant/deodorant, within the first few seconds of spraying on the deodorant, the spray head on the top of the can made a sharp "POP" sound, similar to a gun shot, and ejected the small hard plastic spray nozzle insert (cylinder-shaped hard plastic, measuring approximately 3/16" diameter x 3/16" length) from the canister's spray head, impacting my skin at high velocity, and causing abrupt but only minor pain. Had the spray head's nozzle insert impacted my eye(s) or the eye(s) of someone standing next to me at the mirror in the bathroom at the time, there would have been a HIGH risk of severe injury, with possible permanent loss of eyesight caused by the hard plastic spray nozzle insert's high velocity impact.
I found the small hard plastic spray nozzle insert, and re-inserted it back into the spray can's spray head, and tried applying the spray once again. The spray head insert nozzle AGAIN "popped" loudly, and was ejected at high velocity from the spray head.
I tried a SECOND New canister from the same multi-pack of spray deodorant, and IT ALSO did the same exact thing, ejecting the small spray head nozzle insert within the first few seconds of spraying the anti-perspirant from the can(s).
There are three more new/previously un-opened/unused spray cans in the same multi-pack, which I have NOT tried to use yet. Only ONE canister of the multi-pack has already been completely exhausted and disposed of. The FIRST canister of the multi-pack did NOT have any issues during its usage.
The anti-perspirant/deodorant was purchased as a multi-pack of six canisters, from the Internet on-line vendor: Amazon. com online, within the past few months (between NOV 2018 to DEC 2018).

I have confirmed several of the cans in the multi-pack have IDENTICAL markings.
