Coca-Cola recalls thousands of cans due to contamination risk

Tens of thousands of cans of Coca-Cola products have been recalled due to a contamination risk.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US said in a filing that the recall was due cans of Diet Coke, Sprite and Fanta Orange being potentially contaminated with ‘foreign material’.

The FDA did not disclose what the foreign material was.

Nearly 2,000 cases, the equivalent of about 48,000 cans, have been recalled in the states of Alabama, Mississippi and Florida.

The contaminated cans were manufactured by United Packers in Alabama.

Consumers were advised to throw out any affected cans and to not drink from them.
