When you drink a soda, it makes a snap and gulp sound which can alert nearby zombies. Up to how far can this sound be heard by them?

I would have an answer for this, but my teammate (who had a few cans of soda) didn't want to waste his soda. Never mind the fact that he had three full canteens. – Fluttershy Jul 29 '12 at 14:20
@Fluttershy - I can understand that. It is a waste of resources. – user9983 Jul 29 '12 at 18:05
This is the greatest question title. – iono Oct 20 '12 at 0:20

I have no idea what the actual distance is, but I have heard another player drink from at least 20m before.

Edit: Also each gun has an audible distance for zombies, but players can hear the gunshots MUCH further than the listed distances that will aggro zombies. I would not be surprised if you can hear another player eat/drink from further than zombies can hear it.
