NEW YORK (CBS4) – A woman says she was sickened by an octopus-like sludge found in a bottle of Vita Coco coconut water.
Barbara Kline wrote on social media that she become violently ill after unknowingly swallowing a piece of the slimy substance.
“When I took a big gulp, I swallowed a chunk of something,” she said. “It tasted very thick and syrupy. It was disgusting.”
A spokesperson for Vita Coco said they believe the object was mold and thinks it’s “highly unlikely” to pose a health risk.
Kline is reportedly planning to sue the company for her illness.
The Goshen resident isn’t the only person to find a disgusting surprise in Vita Coco containers.
Several people have posted their sludge-filled bottles online over the last few years.
Kline reportedly won’t give the sample back to Vita Coco for testing because it’s her “only evidence” in the case.
