MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP)— A New Hampshire jury is deliberating whether a lemonade manufacturer will be held liable for the emotional distress a woman says she suffered after finding a dead rat in a can of frozen concentrate.
Fifty-year-old Colleen Grady of Manchester sued the Coca-Cola company — which owns Minute Maid products — plus a food distributor and a supermarket. She says she found the rodent after pouring the contents into a pitcher before a party two years ago.
CBS radio reports that the jury was deliberating the product liability case in a Manchester courtroom on Tuesday.
Coca-Cola representatives say there is no way a rodent could have gotten into the frozen concentrate, given its quality control measures.
