    Indeed, but claim that you earn 10x more than you actually do. That'll teach them to put dead things in cartons of juice.

    The company should've thought of that before they tried to kill one of their customers with a dead animal organ/hidious piece of mould. Personally, i'd have no problem with screwing them over.

    You lot make me laugh! The product was fine when it was first opened. He returned to it a few days later and something had grown in it. Simple as, as disgusting as it may seem and look and indeed be to experience that.

    If you open a product such as juice and choose to refridgerate it and finish it later, you're exposed the product to all the pathogens in the air. Simple stats tell you that from time to time you're going to get environmental contaimination!

    A law suit would not be successful...

    Ah, but how do you know that it wasn't in there all along? He may have only noticed it at the end of the carton. Also, if you store the juice in accordance to the manufacturers' guidelines, and then mould grows in it, then i'd say that the fault lies with the producer, rather than the consumer. He kept it refridgerated and drunk it within the required time of opening, and before the BB date. I think it's more likely the juice was contaminated at time of packaging. There's no way that that much mould could grow so quickly in such a cold environment I don't think.

    He said as much :rolleyes: He didn't notice it at the end of the carton - he swallowed bits nad then checked!

    The problem with bringing a case is that you have to prove it wasn't there to begin with. Very difficult to do.

    Either way I still reckon he deserves compensation and has a case. Either it was contaminated at manufacture - so that's the company's fault. Or the mould grew after it was opened - that's also the company's fault if he stored it according to the guidelines. I'm not suggesting bringing a court case (that'd be a waste of time and resources), just suggesting that he should get all he can out of them, as it's clearly their problem, not his.

    How did you work that out? Unless he climed into the fridge, shut the door behind him and then opened it

    Because there's no way that an air born bacteria could be cultured to form that amount of mould in such a short time, in a cold environment such as a fridge. The fault obviously lies at the point of manufacture/packaging.

    Having a microbial background, I would say it's yeast, not bacterial.

    And it could - easily. Even at 4 degrees C...
