Mousy Mountain Dew
A man claiming that he found a mouse in a can of Mountain Dew purchased from a vending machine filed a lawsuit against PepsiCo in 2009. As upsetting as that sentence is, PepsiCo’s defense doesn’t exactly set the mind at ease— in the ongoing case, they’re relying on expert evidence that says the plaintiff’s claims are ridiculous because in the 15 months from when the pop was bottled to the day it was opened, the Mountain Dew would have dissolved the mouse.
