2009 Two dozen people became ill August 30th while eating at the Mi Ranchito restaurant in Lenexa (USA). It was not the first time diners at this restaurant had gotten sick, officials said.

The managers blamed the soda machine, which they said had backflow problems. That means carbonated water was coming into contact with copper lines, poisoning customers with copper.
