You're absolutely right. Time to ban all coke machines! Not just the one with cans. After all, you touch the bottled drinks, the outside of them could be coated as well.
Then there's the stores. There's no telling what all has been put on the merchandise there. That piece of fruit? It could be injected with something. That bag of potatoes? It could be dusted with anthrax! All those canned veggies? They could be coated in toxins that gets absorbed through the skin.
Air fresheners definitely have to go. Some terrorist could've replaced them all with cans designed to release ebola into the air when you spray them.
Ok, enough sarcasm. See where I'm going with this? If you start worrying about stuff like this, you're going to drive yourself nuts. Personally, I'll take my chances that that can of coke will have something on it.

We shouldnt even be drinking soda to begin with.. its loaded with chemicals and high fructose... that is killing you as it is... I would be more worried about corporate terrorist slowly killing the american people then osama bin landen putting anthrax in few machines... why? assuming terrorists are even real and not a made up fiction of our goverment.. those few machines loaded with poisons would kill 20 people tops... every year thousands of people die of heart disease cancer etc... So my suggestion is kick the can completly not because of terrorist.. but because of the chemicals and poisons sodas already have.
