'Human Waste' Found In Coca-Cola Drinking Cans: Reports

Police have launched an investigation into how suspected 'human waste' found its way into drinking cans sent to a Coca-Cola plant in Northern Ireland.

Irish media outlet RTE.ie reported that production at the plant was disrupted due to the presence of an unexpected substance in the cans. Workers looking into the problem, discovered what seemed to be human waste.

"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," a Coca-Cola spokesperson explained.

They also made it clear that no products available for sale were affected by the issue.

The Guardian explains that cans arrive empty and without lids to the plant where they are filled and sealed to be sold across Northern Ireland.
