Default I found something unexpected in the Beercan?

Ok i now this is about homebrew but maybe someone knwo what I found in a beer can that worries me
I drank a Franziskaner Can beer late on the evning some days ago
All beer i drink i take out once in the week separate from the other garbage because i have to take it to a bottle container that is a bit futher away

So Recently when picking up all the empty cans
I was Shocked to find what for me looked like a pieze of skin condom
with some Black dirt on

It look like some GUM with something black on
it was found on top of the Empty can but was halfway down into the can
so it could have come from the bottom of the can

Here is the photos:



I have never seen something like this inside a can
In my house im the only one and the beer was drank at home so no way nobody could have placed it in there.

I hope is not a condom could it be a pieze of isolation that has break free from the can
but the black dirt do worries me

So far I have not get sick of this one
But last year I drank a Franziskaner and 7 hour later Get Very sick
I have Spasm and pain in stomache that came in waves

I was in bed for 3 days with extreme pain
after 2 days a Doctor checked me saying the gall Was inflamated
but he ruled out food poison

I had eat a kebab i make home the same day so i ended up beliving it was the kebab back then
But now i again beging to think it was the beer

Both cans was Franziskaner beer

Since i lost the reciept from this second time
the shop refuse to do anything

I have called the Distribuitor here and they was surprised
they asked me to send photos by email
I have not heard from them since

I called Brewery in Germany they say they only speak german cant help
I sent email with photos of can and what i found Not reply

I will wait before i go to authorities to find out first from some expert
what this can be

I plan to do a experiment
Open a new franziskaner i have here and pour it into a glas and drink it
(however i feel a bit scared to drink franziskaner after this 2 things that have happened this have never happened with another beer brewery)

Ok so in experiment once beer is poured out
i will check how the isolation inside look
maybe even cut up the can to check it

I will also check if is something that is formed for the beer being opened for days but as i said this has i done before and never has this happened

Anyway once the new beer can is empty i will leave it with a little bit of beer in the buttom for some days i will then see if something similar comes out

Now any suggestion what this is

For me i'm begining to think if i should avoid it
I have now had 2 incident with Franziskaner and Zero with other beers ever

And the suport at franziskaner dont look very good
the first time they said : You cant get sick of our beer
This second time: the excuse is they only speak german and dont reply my emails.

I could get in contact with some health authorities but since the beer is imported i guess is not much they can do in the country i live in
maybe i have to contact health authorities in Germany?

if there was some expert here that could be totaly sure what this is
for this reason i post see if someone can find out

I looked at the pictures, I would hope that isn't a condom. That looks more like a sock of some sort.

On your first picture, is the black powdery stuff on the wood surface from the object?

Looks just like mold to me. It has nothing to do with the type of beer. There's enough food in an empty beer can to build a colony. You left this out for a few days before you picked it up, and it got moldy.
