(Newser) – A Florida man who found a frog in his can of Diet Pepsi wants the company to jump forward with an apology, CNN reports. The man started gagging after taking a swig from the can, his wife says, and found something heavy remained inside the can after he emptied it out.  FDA testing found that the remains inside were that of either a frog or a toad. Pepsi, however, maintains that the speed of its production lines makes it "virtually impossible" for amphibian invaders to get inside a can.
