Stretched bottles, keep or toss?

Recommended Posts

Made a wheat beer using Mangrove Jack's M21 yeast. Great beer, great flavor.. I let this go two weeks and had two equal hydrometer readings so I bottled it.

 Seems this yeast is known to stop then restart. So, it ended up deforming a number of my bottles.  See the bottle on the left in the picture. As they've been severely stretched should I continue to use them or toss them?

Beer is clean with no off flavors so I'm fairly confident the yeast is the problem.

What is your risk tolerance? Worse Case you lose some bottles from leaks or lack of carbonation and have clean up, best case nothing happens. Your call mate.
