A Chinese woman surnamed Luo told the Shandong province-based Qilu Evening News through its hotline on the afternoon of Aug. 30 that her child encountered unknown suspended solids while drinking a can of Pepsi, and then suffered physical discomfort. Luo said she had already contacted the manufacturer.
The reporter saw two open cans of Pepsi and a few cups when he met Luo and his husband Mr. Liu that day. There was some drink left in one of the cups, and certain black substances floated in the drink and attached to the straw inserted into the cup.
Luo said that she and her husband were from Jiangsu province, and visited Jinan, the capital of Shandong province, as tourists. They went to the Longzhifang Restaurant on the first floor of Wanda Plaza in the Quancheng Street for lunch at around noon on Aug. 30, where they also ordered two cans of Pepsi.
“I drank up a can, and failed to notice the suspended solids. Later, my eight-year-old daughter started drinking the second can through a straw, and played with the straw. It was not until then that we found many black substances on the straw. After pouring the rest of the Pepsi into a cup, we saw many unknown suspended solids in the drink. After a while, my daughter said she felt a little uncomfortable on her stomach,” Luo told the reporter.
