Blog: Dr. Pepper – makes you go off with a bang?
Chris Brook-Carter | 14 January 2005
An American woman is suing the bottler and distributor of Dr. Pepper after she drank a bottle of the soft drink that allegedly contained gasoline.
Kimberly Ninness from Oklahoma is asking for more than US$10,000 in damages, claiming that she bought the bottle from a vending machine at work on 30 January last year. Ninness maintains that after she took one drink, her mouth began burning and her stomach began to ache. She ended up going to a hospital emergency room.
The lawsuit claims that testing shows the container contained gasoline.
