Man Finds Hair And Skin Inside Pepsi Can

A man in South Bend, Indiana says he made a gruesome discovery after swallowing what he says was skin covered in hair inside of a can of Pepsi.

Joseph Hidey says he popped open a can of the refreshing beverage, took a drink, and knew something wasn't right.

"I cracked this one open and swallowed a chunk of something, Hidey explained. We opened the can up and found another piece of what looks like skin with hair attached.

Hidey says the can was part of a 24-pack of Pepsi he bought at a nearby Walmart. Pepsi released this statement:

The safety and integrity of our products is our highest priority. We have reached out to Mr. Hidey directly about his claim, which came into our after-hours call center on Sunday, and will thoroughly investigate this matter.
