Human Waste Found In Coca-Cola

If you're a drinker of Coca-Cola, you might want to rethink your drink today.

Police have launched an investigation into a Coca-Cola factory in Northern Ireland after reports of 'human waste' being found in a shipment of empty cans.

The cans were being shipped to the factory before being sealed and filled, and Coca-Cola says they are aware of the issue. They are insistent that the contamination had no impact on products that were sold.

"At Coca-Cola, we take the safety and quality of our products extremely seriously. We are aware of an incident involving empty cans at our plant in Knockmore Hill, Lisburn. We are treating this matter extremely seriously and are conducting a thorough investigation in co-operation with the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI). The problem was identified immediately through our robust quality procedures and all of the product from the affected batch was immediately impounded and will not be sold. This is an isolated incident and does not affect any products currently on sale."

As for what the human waste was, it hasn't been identified. But frankly, does it really matter? The PSNI are currently investigating the contamination.

"Detectives are investigating an incident at commercial premises in the Lisburn area following reports that a consignment of containers delivered to the premises had been contaminated," said a spokesman. "The investigation is at an early stage and there are no further details available at this time."

The factory will also be subjected to an investigation by the Food Standards Agency in Northern Ireland.
