Police have launched an investigation after “human waste” was found in a shipment of Coke cans.
The grim find was made at the Knockmore Hill facility in Lisburn, Ireland — but Coca-Cola has confirmed that none of the products on sale at the moment are affected.
A massive cleanup had to be performed after the shipment arrived from a German supplier the Irish facility had not worked with previously.
A source told the Irish Independent that it was "absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned.
