The roof of a warehouse at a PepsiCo plant in the town of Lebedyan, some 320 kilometres south of Moscow, collapsed on Tuesday, injuring two people and causing juice to flood the town.
Video footage broadcast on state television Tuesday showed torrents of reddish-coloured juice flowing through the streets as stunned drivers passed by in their cars.
"As a result of the collapsed warehouse, several tons of juice spilled and flowed through the streets into the Don River," prosecutors said.
Local investigators said that the nine-storey building that came down was built "like a house of cards".

The massive warehouse was holding some 28 million litres of juice at the time of the incident, officials said.
