Consumer Alert: Lab tests show gooey mold in ‘Vitamin Water’ – San Diego, California News Station – KFMB Channel 8 – cbs8.com
A News 8 consumer alert on contaminated Vitamin Water is expanding across the country. More people are coming forward to complain about a gooey substance inside their energy drink.
“There was this blob of stuff in my mouth and it was all over my mouth and my tongue and I had to peel it off,” said Los Angeles resident Saundra Santamarina. “I panicked and I looked at the bottle and there was this blob floating around in it.”
“It’s like something I’ve never seen before and the taste of it was just terrible. And it made me sick,” Joel Kaufman of Pittsburgh reported to News 8 this week.
“I didn’t know if it was some sort of mold that could be harmful or if it was anything animal related. I had no idea,” said Brett, a Navy man from San Diego, who did not want his last named used for this report.
