Suit: dead mouse in Mountain Dew

May 5, 2009


“A man says he found a dead mouse in a Mountain Dew can after drinking it and has sued PepsiCo and the store where he bought it. Ronald Ball says he got violently ill from drinking it, and when the can was poured into a cup, the dead mouse came out.
Ball sued PepsiCo, Pepsi Cola General Bottlers and Shop ‘N Save in Madison County Court. He says he bought the soda from a vending machine at a Shop ‘N Save, where he worked, on Nov. 10, 2008.”

Beverage assoc: using tobacco industry methods?

April 25, 2009

Okay, I have an issue with these guys and their egregious blog, “Sip and Savour.”  Today’s entry is “weird science” and how consumer don’t know what to think about all these conflicting studies regarding the health impact of soft drinks.  They cast a negative light on the Harvard School of Public Health by saying, “(you have to love the science-by-press-release of today; adds even more to public cynicism).”

Um, its their job to release information about new scientific research.  How is that adding public cynicism?  And talk about bias?  The trade association for big corporate beverage companies is talking about bias?  That’s rich.
