Man finds mouse in his Mountain Dew can, Pepsi Co calls man a liar because the Dew would dissolve the carcass

(Newser)–An Illinois man is suing PepsiCo after allegedly finding a mouse in his Mountain Dew, and the details just keep getting weirder. In 2009, the man says, he got sick after drinking a can of the soda. After he complained to Pepsi, it sent someone to collect the mouse, and reportedly wouldn’t give it back until it had decomposed—thereby apparently preventing the man from using it for “additional testing,” as the Alton Telegraphput it back then. But it gets crazier: Pepsi recently called for a dismissal of the case, notes the Madison St. Clair Record. The company pointed to expert testimony that a mouse in a soda would turn into a “jelly-like” material before the soda reached the customer. In other words, Gizmodo notes, Pepsi is essentially saying that “you’d never know if there was a mouse in your soda.” Well, that’s a relief.

Case closed I guess…this guy suing Pepsi for finding a mouse in his soda can is a liar.  He must have been suing Pepsi Co for like a quadzillion dollars because I think that’s the only way Pepsi’s go to defense would be “pfft…that’s impossible because Mountain Dew is so full of poison and chemicals that no animal carcass would be able to survive in there for that long.” Now I didn’t pass the bar, but I know a little bit…enough to know that it’s not a good idea to say your soda is poisonous as shit.  I feel like closing the door for one lawsuit, but opening yourself up for a class action suit is not the best legal strategy.  Pepsi Co has got 99 problems but a mouse carcass ain’t one.

 

PS: Given the color and toxicity of Mountain Dew I would have guessed that letting a mouse sit in can of it would actually turn it into this guy…
