"When in doubt, throw it out" is the basic food safety rule we're all taught in cooking/food safety or preservation classes.

Swollen cans indicate that the contents have spoiled. I would also be suspicious of the other cans in the carton, since they are likely from the same batch.

Hopefully you can return them and get a refund.
