You know how a lot of people complain about frivolous lawsuits? Well, listen
to this story and decide if you think it’s a frivolous lawsuit.
Vitaliy Suzhik of Federal Way, WA, has filed a lawsuit against Hansen
Beverage Company for negligence and product liability. Suzhik claims he
discovered a mouse in a 16-ounce can of Monster Energy Drink. He alleges
that as he drank from the can, “debris and gunk” entered his
mouth, and when he peered into the can, he saw a tail. He went to the
emergency room at St. Francis Hospital and was told he would be fine.
Hansen, the manufacturer of Monster Energy Drinks, issued a statement disagreeing
with Suzhik’s claim. The company asserts its production process
has strict safety standards and there is no way a mouse could have gotten
into a can during production. For more information on this story, see
