Man Notices Something In Bottom Of Beer Can - Horrified When He Sees What It Is

A man was taking a sip from his beer when he noticed something strange inside. Once he realized what it was, things took a shocking turn.

George Toubbeh, a Californian man who alleges that his can of beer was contaminated by dead geckos, has filed a lawsuit against Heineken and Kroger Co. Mr. Toubbeh was at his home in Fountain Valley, California, when he drank the Heineken beer and immediately tasted a foul flavor. Soon after drinking, Mr. Toubbeh began doubling over and vomiting, dropping the can of Heineken on the floor.

Mr. Toubbeh’s daughter, guessing that the beer was contaminated by some sort of substance, peered inside the can and found two emaciated dead geckos. According to Mr. Toubbeh’s lawsuit, “When discovered, the geckos had not been decomposed at all and were likely alive when the beer was poured and sealed into the cans in the bottling and/or canning facility.”

Feeling lightheaded and finding it difficult to stop retching, Mr. Toubbeh was forced to travel to the local hospital’s emergency room, where medical professionals hurriedly prescribed him with Xanax, a sedative, and Zofran, nausea medication.

The Heineken beer was part of a six-pack purchased from a local Ralphs store in Fountain Valley. However, Mr. Toubbeh’s lawsuit places the blame squarely on Heineken and Kroger Co. In a news story, the LA Times has asserted that Mr. Toubbeh’s lawsuit has been filed in the Orange County Superior Court, requesting “unspecified general damages, medical expenses, lost earnings and the cost of the lawsuit.”

According to ABC 7, Heineken and Kroger Co. have launched an investigation into the incident and concluded that Mr. Toubbeh’s story is not an honest account of the incident. As the story began to go viral, Heineken and Kroger Co. released the following statement: “[Heineken and Kroger Co.] holds the safety and integrity of the products we import to the highest standards. We have investigated this isolated claim, and based on a number of factors, we confidently believe there is no merit to this claim.”

Mr. Toubbeh’s attorney, who remains unnamed, doesn’t agree with Heineken’s statement, emphasizing that the beer can and gecko remains were assessed by an independent zoologist, stating: “We feel the action is meritorious and viable.”

The response from online commenters has been characteristically polarized. One Daily Mail commenter, known as RTW1, came out in support of Mr. Toubbeh, writing: “My sister-in-law and her husband in Hawaii occasionally have geckos get in their house. The things would sometimes get in the water chamber of their coffee maker and you would find out if the first cup smelled/tasted bad. No idea what they do in a brewery but they do seem to end up where they're not wanted.”

However, RTW1 was part of the minority, with many other commenters accusing Mr. Toubbeh of being a “scam artist,” a “lizard killer” and an “idiot.” One commenter, Candyman, was particularly unconvinced by Mr. Toubbeh’s assertions, writing: "No way sorry i own one of these exact little geckos and no way they would get in the beer vat at the plant no way they are not ‘naturally in the area’ nope.”
