The Pepsi scam

The next time you stop at a Dhaba on the highway or any roadside snack bar please be cautious while you order your soft drinks. Here are a few pictures I recieved today through my Email and I would like to share them with you. Please note: These images do not reflect the actual company, however these soft drinks are made locally around the country. The companies are well aware of it, But its hard to stop them as this local soft drink racket has its network spread all over the country .

Although carbonated soft drinks while being prepared are taken extreme care it goes through various number of quality checks but they are still known to harm you.
But imagine this locally made PEPSI?? What can this do to you.

    well, not necessarily, this happens in any country (3rd world), does not have to be literally ours! You can find these bottles *(fake pepsi, coca cola etc). in the outskirts of any city!
