According to the setter. "All the answers are things you’d find in tins/cans (some of them bizarre!) – and you’ll need to ‘think outside the can’ (as well as inside) for some of these".   They may well be right as I have “car” for one of the answers (that is if I am right!) 

It’s clues only please but I’ll be grateful for any help at all as I’m totally stumped on these!

16.  Japanese n etherwear (5).  (BTW This is how the clue is composed but I guess it could be a typing mistake and mean netherwear as all one word)

48. French house carriers (9)

49. The king with added dairy (12)

50. Americans don’t want anyone unloading a can of this on them (5,3 or 8)
