An investigation has been launched by police in Ireland after human waste was discovered in empty cans of the soft drink Coca-Cola. The factory is located at the Knockmore Hill Facility, in Lisburn and Coca-Cola has been quick to confirm that none of the cans on sale have been affected.
The shipment of coke had arrived at the Knockmore Hill Facility from a supplier in Germany, who they hadn’t worked with previously. One source described the incident as being absolutely horrible. Now a massive clean-up is in place and machines were immediately turned off and remained un-operational for around 15 hours during the cleaning.
It was said that the Coke cans arrived via truck from Germany and one explanation as to how the human waste got into the cans was that immigrants might have used them as their toilet as they made the journey from Germany to Ireland.
A source said that in total desperation and with nowhere else to go they might have been forced to use the Coke cans as they didn’t have a toilet. This is just a rumor as nothing has been confirmed. Detectives in Northern Ireland are looking into the incident, and the investigation is said to be in the early stages.
Coke-Cola made an announcement saying that the issue had been identified straight away thanks to the facility having quality procedures in place that are robust. A spokesperson said that they were taking the matter very seriously and working with the PSNI. They went on to say that the entire product from the production that had been affected had been impounded and none of it would reach the shelves. They added that the incident was an isolated one and none of the drink that is on sale has been affected in any way.
The Foods Standards Agency was also notified of the contamination, and a spokesperson said that they hadn’t found any evidence that suggests products that were affected have reached the market. Meanwhile, the police in Northern Ireland are continuing to work alongside Castlereagh City Council and the Environmental Health Unit of Lisburn in investigating the incident.
This isn’t the first time that Coke-Cola has been in the news. In November people were outraged when they found out that the recipe for the drink had been changed by the company. Of course, this incident has nothing to do with intentionally changing the recipe as adding human waste to the drink would not be considered a step forward in altering it for the better, or would it?
