I experienced seeing a bubble gum inside a softdrink bottle. The contaminant are accidentally added to food in processing line or due to insufficient bottle washing. Other contaminants that are found in bottles are straws, candy wrappers, pieces of metal, cigarette filter etc… Thorough cleaning and inspection should be done to prevent contamination.
Bottles are popular packaging for food and beverages due to its inert properties. However, the bottle itself may also be a contaminant:
