New Coke-Cola Bottles and/or Caps

If you drink sodas you may have noticed, that Coke-Cola has a new bottle-cap for their twist off plastic bottles. I have purchased two bottles over the past two weeks of Diet Coke and I could not finish either, one because of the stench on the bottles (or the caps). I would smell the outside of the bottle and everything is fine, then when you put your nose over the bottle and sniff, you get a pretty rank smell. I only started to notice this on the bottles with the new caps. I have not checked just the cap, but today was the second occurrence and I thought I would Google it to see if others have noticed it as well. There is at least one person who has.

    I mean they really smell bad. I don't know why but many cokes I have bought with this new cap have a terrible smell to it and it makes me not want to drink another diet coke. Please go back to the original cap!


So, is this something that was not QA'd well enough? Did they change the Diet Coke recipe, did they change the bottles, or is it just the cap itself? I know, I will NOT be buying another diet coke (or any other drink with a cap like this, if that smell is present).
