Coca-Cola is recalling five of its popular drinks
because there might be glass fragments in the bottles.
Schweppes Lemonade, Tonic Water, Soda, Dry Ginger Ale and
Soda Lemon Twist in 330ml glass bottles, with best-before
dates between January 10 and 30, 2014, may contain the
Coca-Cola said in the recall notice that there was a fault in
a small number of glass bottles within those batches which
may have chipped finishes and glass fragments.
The affected products may have been sold individually or in
packs of four from supermarkets, cafes, licensed premises and
other retail outlets throughout New Zealand.
Coca-Cola could not be contacted for comment on the recall.
Consumers who bought any of the affected products are asked
to check the best-before date on the neck of the bottle.
If the date is between January 10 and 30, 2014, they
shouldn't be drunk.
Consumers should contact Coca-Cola on 08000-505-123 for
further instructions about what to do with the bottle.
Coca-Cola will provide a replacement voucher.
In May 2011, Coca-Cola was forced to change the way it wrote
recall notices after it was pulled up by health authorities
for the way it recalled its Pumped flavoured water that made
11 people ill.
Problems with a sterilising process at the Putaruru factory
saw white mould form in the flavoured water bottles.
