A 13-year-old in Shoreline said he took a swig of his Mountain Dew and it turned out to be whiskey. His parents say the bottle was sealed and looked legit.

“Except for the color it looks like a fully functional Mountain Dew,” said Marie Grant, mother.
 
Marcus Olson immediately spit it out.
 
“It tasted a little bitter. It didn’t taste like Mountain Dew at all,” he said.
 
His mother said her son drank at least a shot. Grant is furious. She claims she’s only getting the run around from both Pepsi and the store where she bought it.
 
“They say well send us in a bottle, here’s some coupons for free Pepsi products and oops. Safeway, I got a letter from their human resources, and they say they aren’t accountable for anything. That it is a vendor issue and to deal with them,” said the mother.
 
The family fears other bottles might end up in the wrong hands and go unnoticed.
 
“And you have a staggering 8-year-old down the road,” said Grant.
 
The family plans to stop buying Mountain Dew.
 
“Especially for my 13-year-old,” said Grant.
 
The family said managers at the store examined the rest of the soda bottles, but didn't find any other irregularities.
