New plastic bills reportedly melting in summer heat
It appears some of Canada’s new plastic money can’t stand the heat of the summer.
There have been reports of the new $50 and $100 polymer bills melting.
Brittney Halldorson, a teller at the Interior Savings Credit Union in Kelowna, says the bills are supposed to withstand boiling water but she’s heard of cases where several of the bills have melted together inside a hot car.
She says the only way a person can be reimbursed is if they have the bill’s serial number.
