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.
Boy finds whiskey in Mountain Dew
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.
