{{#badges: Tobaccowiki}} Exploding cigarettes

In this 1996 letter, a consumer writes to R.J. Reynolds telling them that the Doral Menthol 100 cigarettes he bought frequently explode while he was smoking them. He writes, "[T]he flame goes out immediately, but its enough to burn your fingers-or sizzle your nose tip-or, more commonly, drop the cigarette....[The soft popping sounds the explosion makes] sounds a little like my dad's cigarettes used to sound in pre-war Manila when the tiny worms within the tobacco would "pop" as he smoked."

He states this has happened with several cartons he purchased at Wal Mart.
