I would say no since one can will dilute but add a significant amount of sugar. Add some sorbate to play it safe. One can is enough for me to round out five gallons.

The two packs sitting in my fridge for the last six months ought to be ok?
Here's the lot info:
Batch lot #: 1080961099V
Exp Date: 12/2011
Tubercle had some of the last recall but used it anyway and didn't notice any adverse effects. Of course, my beer may be of such bad quality that nothing hurts it
An email from Danstar:Is the dry yeast tainted with bacteria or what? What are the "difficulties" reported? And what constitutes "a lot of people"?
"Thanks for your inquiry. Indeed we are asking retailers to suspend sales of batch number 1080961099V and to return the inventory to us, and we will be posting something to homebrew forums in the coming days as well. While our tests of retained samples of this batch are fermenting properly, there are a lot of people reporting difficulties with this batch via forums, and we have received inquiries from a few people that have contacted us directly. We feel it is better to withdraw this batch from the market and assess the nature of the issue rather than risk brewers getting disappointing results.
Thanks again, and let me know if you have any more questions."

Crap! It looks like I have some of this lot. Time to call my LHBS.
I usually soak the bottles in warm water containing caustic soda. Liquid Plumber add to warm water works very well. Commercial
Breweries use a caustic solution to remove labels. Just wear dish washing gloves as caustic ( sodium or potassium hydroxide) will cause skin irritation or burns in high concentration. just rinse well after soaking overnight and sanitize and you are done.
Fast as it will allow.
Yep, that's what I said
On my system that's full throttle with no problems.
