I ignored when I saw one. Perhaps another stitched story to gain social media popularity. Then came up another with similar scenario. Almost the same situation but showing different brand.
An opened branded drink in tetra pack. A kind of solid thing that they said came from it. Then a short story in capitalized letters:
NAPAINUM SA ANK KO DUTCH MILL NA HINDI NAMEN ALM KUNG ANO??? AKALA KO DI TOTOO ANG MGA NASA FB!! MAGING AWARE N TYO MKKPAGMURA TLGA AKO NG WLA SA ORAS!?
DAME PNAINUM NG ANAK KO
KELANGANG IPALIWANAG NYO SMEN TO
It might be a hoax. The person involved wanted something from the company. Some cash to keep himself silent or payment for probable damages. Or he was an ousted employee wanting to get revenge.
A black propaganda by other brand. Other than launching expensive brand advertising, a negative campaign against competing brands seems effective. It almost has no cost. A simple wall post can go a long way.
Campaign against junk foods by some group. It is not the right way to do it. Again, it is an evil cost effective approach.
Someone is doing it just for fun. We do not know whatever his reason is.
I have seen foreign objects in softdrinks and beer bottles many times. Cigarette butt, straw, woods, plastics and others. The incidents were not surprising because those bottles are returnables. Those foreign objects were put in by customers. Missed on cleaning process, goes back to production line and filled again.
The above scenario has become very rare these days as production lines of huge companies use cutting-edge technologies. They have the capability to inspect every single item and toss out rejects at a very high speed.
If the incidents are true, FDA won’t keep silent. They will bare their fangs and furiously stop operation of committers.
