Drinks giant Coca-Cola has released a statement reassuring customers that it is safe to drink its products after an unsavoury incident at its can manufacturer supplier in Milton Keynes.
Earlier today we revealed that a worker at a Milton Keynes company that manufacturers cans for drinks giants Coca-Cola, Carlsberg and Monster was marched off the premises after being caught URINATING in one of the empty cans.
Fellow workers at the Ball Corporation plant in Northfield watched in disgust as the employee performed his action in public.
Some workers claim the company simply cleaned up the urine spillage area and allowed production to continue after the bizarre incident. But Ball Corporation bosses say the affected can was not on the production line.
The story has attracted national attention and now a spokesman for Coca-Cola Great Britain has moved to reassure customers in a statement to the MK Citizen.
“This is an isolated incident which took place at our external can manufacturing supplier, Ball, which is a separate facility to our factory,” the statement said.
“We are confident that Ball has robust hygiene procedures in place, and they acted swiftly and appropriately in dealing with this matter.
“We are assured that the single empty can has been discarded, and that there was no impact at all to any other packs or production lines at the Ball facility.”
