Pepsi mops up 'unusual' Mountain Dew spill at Howell bottling plant

I pretty much read that as "Doc's Dew containment was breached again. Hazmat called to help contain the radio active waste."

It is hazardous to those who haven't build up an extreme tolerance to caffeine, yes, but it's only dangerous on physical contact.

Admittedly, for those with weaker constitutions, just skin contact could be hazardous, but lead shielding isn't required. Doc just opted for efficiency and lead lined the entire facility.

Any sodas concentrated syrup is required by international law to be treated as a hazardous material.

Now as for Doc's Dew I think even fully deluded its a highly corrosive material.

The product may not be radioactive, but some of the processing equipment might be.

A company where I used to live made high speed paper thickness gauges for the cigarette industry. They used a non-contact method that involved shining radiation from a calibrated source through the paper, and a detector on the other side measured the attenuation and computed the thickness.
If it ain't broke, I'll fix it!

And the floor, and probably most of the building?

... but Chlorine TriFluoride, that's another thing entirely. (link)

(Yeah, that link's been around here more than a couple times, but it still amusing as all get out.)
