Northern Ireland police investigating ‘Human waste found in Coca-Cola cans’
The night shift at Coca-Cola’s Lisburn plant was disrupted last week when machines became clogged with what looked like human waste, said a report.
“It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned,” a source said. “It was unusual because normally the cans come from somewhere else in the UK, but this time they apparently came from Germany.”
Blaming it on Trump’s “Friends?”
“The rumour is that some poor immigrants could have made that long journey in the lorry and that in their desperation were forced to use the cans instead of a toilet.
“It’s really shocking – and beyond the shock of finding something pretty disgusting in the cans is the thought there could have been poor people in that situation. And if they did make that journey, where are they now?”
The factory manager at Coca-Cola Hellenic in Lisburn, located in the city’s Knockmore industrial estate, contacted the police, who are investigating the matter.
“Coca-Cola take the safety and quality of our products extremely seriously,” the canned drinks giant said.
“The FSA in NI is aware of a physical contamination incident at Coca-Cola Hellenic in Lisburn. There is no evidence to suggest that any affected product has reached the market [but we can’t say for sure,]” said the Food Standards Agency in N. Ireland.
“I’m about one-quarter Coca-Cola,” and that he had seen no evidence that switching to “water and broccoli” would make it easier for him to make it to age 100,” said Buffett in an interview.
“I elect to get my 2,600 or 2,700 calories a day from things that make me feel good when I eat them. That’s my sole test,” he said. “I like fudge a lot. Peanut brittle. I am a very, very, very happy guy.”
His company, Berkshire Hathaway, owned 400 million shares of Coke, about 9 percent of the company, as of May 2016.
