A Madison County personal injury lawsuit involving a dead mouse and a can of Mountain Dew has drawn international headlines.
Since yesterday, nearly 100 news outlets have picked up on plaintiff Ronald Ball’s lawsuit against PepsiCo, as first reported in the Madison County Record.
Ball alleges that he bought a can of the soda from a vending machine at his place of work in November 2008, Marathon Oil in Wood River, and discovered a dead mouse after he took a sip from the can.
He “became violently ill such that he began to vomit,” his suit states.
