1. A can containing a food product which creates a gas buildup, the top of the can comprising a flexible lid having a vent valve to vent built-up gases, an overcap covering the lid and engaging the sides of the can around the periphery thereof, the overcap including a spacing structure inward from an inner edge of the periphery which prevents the vent value from being blocked by the overcap when the lid is pushed toward the overcap by gases built-up within the can.
