Police in Ireland have launched an investigation after human waste was found in a shipment of drinks at a Coca-Cola plant in Lisburn, Ireland.
A container of cans arriving from Germany had clogged up the machines. That's when workers discovered a number of them were filled with poop.
"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 rumour 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?"
A statement from the Lisburn plant said:
"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."
Can you imagine being a detective, and you get assigned to be on the Great Poo Can Crisis of Northern Ireland?
Now that's a mystery to be solved!
Meanwhile our drinks here are fine, so crack open a nice cold coke!
