Photo by VnExpress/Hai Duyen.Vietnam’s largest brewer Sabeco has asked that a plaintiff be investigated for demanding compensation of over $1 million over two alleged faulty beer bottles. The request was made during a hearing at a Ho Chi Minh City court Tuesday. Nguyen Phuong Du, 46, a city resident, has sued the Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp, or Sabeco, over suffering caused by strange-smelling liquid he found in partially-filled sealed beer bottles. Du’s case is that in a 24-bottle case of Sabeco’s Saigon Beer that he bought in September 2018, two were partially filled, one with half and another with quarter the usual quantity of beer. Furthermore, the liquid inside smelled strange.
Both bottles were sealed and carried an expiry date in 2019. Du suspected the liquid inside the two bottles could be leftover beer or water used to clean the bottles that were sealed and sent to the market through some fault in the production process. He reported the situation to Sabeco and the company only sent a representative to record and verify the complaint several weeks later. He never heard from Sabeco after.
