Accidental Fermented Apple juice

So I went to vacation and when I came back my opened bottle of apple juice was bulging and fizzy. Guessing it's cross contamination from my fermented veg in the fridge. Is this safe to drink?

I've never gotten sick from it, but that doesn't mean you won't. I have found that sometimes it tastes pretty bad.

yep. if you catch it early enough that there's still some sugar in the mix, or if you catch it late enough that the process is mostly completed and the yeasts etc have done some 'cleanup', there's a better chance of finding a decent taste. a lot of the time between those two points can be pretty nasty.
