PepsiCo battled a potential public relations disaster yesterday as reports spread of needles and syringes being found in Pepsi Cola cans and some supermarkets began pulling the popular soft drink from shelves, Reuter reports from New York. So far, people in about a dozen US states claimed to have found hypodermic needles and syringes in cans as embattled Pepsi executives insisted there was no way this could happen in what they described as a virtually tamper- proof manufacturing process.
