Coca-Cola Plant Shuts Down After Human Shit Was Found In Cans
FINALLY, the age old question can be put to rest: the difference between Pepsi and Coke can be traced back to the poop shoot.
An Irish Coca-Cola factory is being investigated after ‘human waste’ was allegedly found in a shipment of cans.
Factory workers at a Lisburn, Northern Ireland Coca Cola plant were disgusted when their night shift was halted due to the machines being clogged with what appeared to be human poop.
According to UNILAD, a source at the plant said:
It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned.
It was unusual because normally the cans come from somewhere else in the UK, but this time they apparently came from Germany.
The rumor 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 cans typically arrive at the plant without the tops on, as they are filled at the plant before sealing.
Coca-Cola immediately released a statement after the debacle:
“At Coca-Cola, we take the safety and quality of our products extremely seriously. We are aware of an incident involving empty cans at our plant in Knockmore Hill, Lisburn. We are treating this matter extremely seriously and are conducting a thorough investigation in co-operation with the PSNI.
The problem was identified immediately through our robust quality procedures and all of the product from the affected production was immediately impounded and will not be sold. This is an isolated incident and does not affect any products currently on sale.”
The soft drink giant also added that this is an isolated incident that “does not affect any products currently on sale.”
No one is happier about the shit storm than the folks over at Pepsi.
