Bomb Proof Cans Not So Bomb Proof?

This morning’s New York Post (alright, yes, I know) has an interesting piece on the trash cans at Grand Central Station in NYC. Apparently, they’re not so bomb-proof after all:

Bomb-smothering trash cans in New York rail hubs don’t work and could even make a terror blast more deadly by shredding you with shrapnel, say two whistleblowers who worked with the maker of the cans.

Wait, didn’t DC just order a bunch of those trash cans for $800,000 or so?
