All right. We’ve heard the stories about flies in our soup and rodents in canned goods. I never was sure about the rodent one myself, but evidently it CAN (sorry) happen.
The case happened in 2009 and when he notified Pepsi about the extra ingredient, they asked him to send the mouse to them for testing. When the plaintiff asked for his evidence to be returned, they claimed they needed the little furry rodent to decompose even further for testing. Thus, he wasn’t able to complete his own testing.
Pepsi then released a statement claiming that if the mouse had indeed been in the can with the beverage, it would’ve been reduced to a “jelly-like material” before it reached the customer.
If Pepsi is acknowledging that the product is capable of reducing flesh, hair and bones to a “jelly-like material” before the consumer gets it, what will it do to the consumer?
And me, myself, I would rather find, one way or another, some kind of a fur ball in my drink than a “jelly-like material”. (Right now, I have lost all my appetite and my taste buds have retracted, if that’s possible)
The case is set for trial later this year.
Pepsi is denying all claims.
