New Iberia Couple Shocked, Disgusted After Finding Mysterious Shell-Like Object in Soda Can—What is It?
A couple from New Iberia is sending out a warning to others after finding a mysterious foreign object in a can of soda.
Alyse Landry says she bought a 12-pack of Dr. Pepper from the local Super 1 Foods store in New Iberia. Upon her return home, Landry says she was putting away her groceries when she "felt something shaking around" in one of her Dr. Pepper soda cans.
At the time, she didn't pay it much mind—but later when she would grab a soda from the refrigerator she still heard something shaking around in the can when she opened it and took the first sip. Landry poured the soda into a glass and what she and her boyfriend discovered next was nothing short of shocking.
When Alyse cut open the can of soda to investigate, the item she heard "shaking around" turned out to be a rock-like object that looked like half an oyster shell.
According to Landry, there were also other pieces of the rock-like shell floating around in the can as well. She says she called Dr. Pepper to let them know what was found and they didn't seem too concerned about the foreign object in the soda. Instead, they offered to send Landry some coupons to replace the bad soda.
Landry says she wasn't worried about getting free soda.
I called Dr. Pepper and all they had to say was that they would send me some coupons but I’m not worried about the coupons I wanna make sure no one else is drinking something with this in it.
With over 1,000 shares on Facebook alone, there was definitely a wide range of reactions including a lot of speculation on what the object could be.
Others were concerned about the batch of the soda possibly being past the expiration date.
And then there were those commenters who were just grossed out.
This is definitely not the first time someone has found a foreign object in their soda. Back in 2018, a Houston man had a similar experience with a mysterious object that he found in a can of Sprite.
Just like Landry, the Houston man was thanked for reaching out to the Coca-Cola company who said they were looking into the issue.
We are committed to ensuring our products meet the highest quality and safety standards at all times. We are looking into this situation to understand the facts.
Landry said that while the item hasn't officially been identified, she did feel sick after taking a sip of the soda with the foreign object in it and ended up staying "near the toilet all night."
I wouldn’t want anyone else to feel like that.
Have you ever found a foreign object in a sealed food or drink item? Do you have any clue what this object could be in Landry's Dr. Pepper?
If so, sound off in the comments and always be cautious of any food or drink item that doesn't look or sound right.
Then, there's always this way to see inside of a can without opening it.
