Coca-Cola has called police to investigate that how human waste contaminated a consignment of cans, which was due to be used in the plant.
The plant in Northern Ireland halted production after the identification of human waste in most of its soft drink cans. Police was being called after the identification of human waste, it had also launched inquiry into the matter. The cans were delivered from Hellenic Bottling Company factory in Lisburn, Co Antrim.
Coca-Cola had halted the production in the night-shift when the machines had become clogged. The company had claimed that all the contaminated drinks were seized and no products on sale were affected. The consignment cans were received without tops and they were to be filled with drink and get sealed.
Earlier, the empty cans came from somewhere in the UK, but this time the consignment has come from Germany.
The matter was much horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours. The plant was halted for 15 hours as it was needed to be cleaned.
The rumor was that some poor immigrants could have made that long journey in the lorry and in their desperation they were forced to use the cans instead of a toilet. But the real matter is still to be investigated by the police.
The matter could severely harm the credibility of the soft drink tycoon as it is facing high level competition in the market.
