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

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 hadopened 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.

2. years ago I worked for a large baby food factory

 

someone on the production line was putting pennies in the jars before being sealed. I guess he was just doing it for the kicks but management didn't think it was too funny. Think he just got fired, it was before the tylenol scare of '82, now days you could get some serious prison time for tampering.

3. Most beef recalls are

related to tankage being thrown into a Mixer Tub or smeared on the breakdown benches.
