It turns out, this was done on purpose.
The cans are purposely filled this way to make it easier for customers to get the sauce out as one whole log, Adweek reports. A spokesperson for Ocean Spray spoke with Adweek and explained that the rounded edge at the bottom of the can creates an air bubble.
This is what makes it possible to slide the sauce out all at once and have it retain the shape of the can, which has become a Thanksgiving tradition.
