'Black Residue' Found In Del Monte Pineapple Juice
A certain Ruben Gabona, whose Facebook profile shows he's working at the Bureau of Fire Protection, uploaded the video on October 23. It has garnered over 104,000 views and more than 4,000 shares as of this posting.

Following his "experience," he urged people who consume canned drinks to be cautious.

In the video, Gabona compares the content of two Heart Smart cans. The product with a "December 2014" expiration date appears to be dirty and darker in color than the one which will expire in "February 2016."

After he opened the top cover of the product that's about to expire, Gabona found a "black residue" that formed inside the container. A woman, believed to be his wife, and a man, who took the video, witnessed what went on.

If by chance he was able to drink it, Gabona said the pineapple juice could have been a "heart/health hazard."

On Tuesday night, he has removed or made the video private but netizens were able to capture a screenshot.
