Was it, like Soylent, also infested with rats?

Why anyone would want to pay extra for a poor-safety-record Ensure/Slimfast/Medifast copycat meal-replacement shake?

They've long been mixing the stuff in a commercial facility (not some random warehouse) since rats were "reported", and those other shakes you mentioned are full of shit calories. (simple sugars) And no, I no longer drink the stuff, I just tried an early iteration.

But my guess is the container is unfit for rodents, since he didn't pass it on to any professionals. (unlike his shake)

Sugar is just carbohydrates. Your body needs carbohydrates, and in bigger amounts than any other nutrient. Those trying to convince you otherwise are ignorant or trying to sell you snake-oil. Dieting is a prime target for lies and fraud. Studies consistently show the various major diets all perform equivalent (within the margin of error), and weight gain or loss is directly proportional to calorie intake regardless of type and source.
