Coca-Cola calls in police after human waste is found in cans

Northern Ireland factory halts production after machine became clogged with faeces, though no contaminated drinks reached shelves

Coca-Cola has called in police to investigate how human waste turned up in a consignment of its drink cans at one of the company’s factories in Northern Ireland.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland confirmed on Tuesday it had opened an inquiry into how faeces ended up in the cans at the Helllenic Bottling Company factory in Lisburn, Co Antrim.

Coca-Cola suspended night-time processing last week at the plant when machines became clogged.

The soft drinks giant said it impounded all the affected cans and that the contamination did not affect any products that were on sale. The cans arrive at the factory without tops, to be filled with the fizzy drink before they are sealed and sold across Northern Ireland.

A PSNI spokesman said: “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. The investigation is at an early stage and there are no further details available at this time.”

In a statement, the company told the Belfast Telegraph: “Coca-Cola takes 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 PSNI.

“The problem was identified immediately through our robust quality procedures and all of the product from the affected production was immediately impounded and will not be sold. This is an isolated incident and does not affect any products currently on sale.”

The Food Standards Agency said none of the cans contaminated with faeces had reached the market in Northern Ireland. It added: “The incident is subject to an investigation by the PSNI and the environmental health unit of Lisburn and Castlereagh city council.”

The cans were shipped from Germany to Ireland. "Immigrants" are suspected.

I wonder if traces of Pespi would be in these feces.

They probably figured they'd wipe their a$$es with the can instead of their hand.

Ironic considering I heard they just joined the homo promo bandwagon. Celebrate s@!t. I guess. It’s sexy now and if you don’t agree you are a hater.

Who ever did this must not watch any of the CIS tv shows. Never leave behind DNA. Even if it is animal DNA they can narrow it down to the type of grass feed and where that is produced/grown and still pinpoint the perps, at least on TV. /s

Another article I read said some immigrants in Germany had been transported in a truck that was carrying the cans.

I remember the rumor fifty five years ago about the black man who disappeared at the Pepsi plant in Tulsa. Several weeks later, while cleaning the tanks, they found his bones in the bottom.

No proof was ever given but all the kids considered it TRUE!
