|The plastic was torn at bottom left and one bottle removed.|
If a shopper wants a chilled bottle immediately, he can buy one from the vending machine out front for 25 cents, another bargain.
I couldn't understand why someone would steal one of the room-temperature bottles, "saving" 7½ or 25 cents and making the 40-pack unsellable. Some people.
(BTW, a few feet away I found another case in the same condition.)
