The case came to us from a Nottinghamshire resident whose father had purchased a 330ml bottle of the abovementioned acetic acid product believing it to be a bottle of lemonade. The consumer has sight issues, but the placement of the bottle with other foodstuffs, combined with the shape of the bottle being one ordinarily used in the UK to hold beverages – most notably children’s drinks – and the colouring of the label which is commonly used in the UK to label lemonade, all led the consumer to believe that they were purchasing a bottle of lemonade.
The consumer proceeded to drink a small amount of the fluid after which he immediately felt ill. During the course of the day, he became increasingly ill and sought medical intervention from various medical outlets, culminating in the consumer being admitted to the hospital with severe burns to his oesophagus.
Whilst the product appears to be commonly on sale in Eastern European countries, it is not something sold commonly across the UK.
