Monster Energy Drink: Mouse Suit a 'Shakedown'

People were horrified to learn of Vitaliy Sulzhik, who reportedly found a dead mouse in a can of Monster Energy Drink.

But, according to Hansen Beverage Company, Monster's manufacturer, Sulzhik's negligence and product liability lawsuit is a sham.

If there really was a dead mouse in a can of Monster Energy Drink, it would have deteriorated, rendering the first sip undrinkable.

Injury Claim? You may be entitled to compensation!

On March 28, Vitaliy Sulzhik filed suit against Monster's parent company, alleging that he had found a dead mouse at the bottom of a can. He packed the can up, mouse and all, and sent it to his lawyer for testing.

According to Hansen's, the mouse-in-can suit is a hoax. During the manufacturing process, each empty can of Monster Energy Drink is turned upside down and injected with high-pressured air, reports King 5.

Moreover, the statement notes that the alleged mouse is only found in rural areas, such as where Sulzhik lives--not in crowded Southern California.

At the moment, Vitaliy Sulzhik is claiming that finding a mouse in a can of Monster has scarred him for life. He apparently fears packaged foods, reports Slash Food, and is seeking reasonable compensation.

If this lawsuit does turn out to be a hoax, Sulzhik can expected to be sued right back. When requested, courts often require plaintiffs who file frivolous lawsuits to pay for a defendant's attorneys fees and court costs. They may also refer them for criminal prosecution.

In this blogger's opinion, Vitaliy Sulzhik should thank Monster Energy drink for the mouse in a can. The stuff can dissolve mice and packaged food isn't that great for you.
