An Illinois man filed suit against Pepsi Co in 2009, claiming that he found a mouse in a can of Mountain Dew (a brand owned by Pepsi). In response, Pepsi has come up with experts to testify that if a mouse had been marinading in a can of Mountain Dew from the time it was bottled until the time the plaintiff drank it, the mouse would have dissolved into an unrecognizable “jelly-like substance.”
Update: Ronald Ball, the plaintiff, withdrew the complaint last week (July 30) after accepting a settlement from Pepsi Co (amount not disclosed). Pepsi Co continues, however, to deny any liability.
