Is Coke about to get canned? A 27-year-old Russian woman recently sued the soft drink company for her Coke addiction- and won! She claims to have acquired her addiction by participating in a promotional offer that traded bottle caps for prizes. At trial, exhibit A was one of the inflatable mattresses awarded to her. Exhibits B, C, and D consisted of other crap prizes that most people would repackage and use as Christmas gifts for third cousin relatives. Natalya Kashuba, however, drank around 3 liters a day for 5 years in order to win herself a pile of worthless junk, not to mention an invaluable chronic gastrointestinal condition. Because Coca Cola failed to warn its consumers of potential health risks, the court made Coke cough up some cash in an unprecedented ruling that could inspire many more suits to follow. Hmm...is Coke on the verge of broke?
