(BELFAST TELEGRAPH) — Police have launched an investigation after what appears to be human waste was found in a shipment of drinks cans at a Co Antrim factory.
Multinational Coca-Cola said it was probing the matter with the PSNI. It added products currently on sale were not affected.
The night shift at Lisburn’s Coca-Cola plant was disrupted last week when a container of cans thought to have arrived from Germany clogged up the machines – only for workers to discover a number were filled with what looked like human waste.
“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.
