Ludhiana, (GGS NEWS) 28 June 2011 :: Check the bottle before drinking a soft drink. A Doraha resident, Suresh Sharma, showed four bottles of Coke, Fanta, Maaza, and Limca which he bought from a local dealer in Doraha.
“I got a crate of soft drinks from a local trader about a week ago. I was shocked to find that four bottles contained insects and fungus.
I called up the general manager of Coca Cola company and he sent two employees to check the bottles. They took down the manufacturing date along with the batch number. Later, an employee came to me for negotiation, but I refused,” he said.
The cold drink bottles were filled on April 29, May 30, June 7 and June 10. All efforts to contact the local dealer proved futile. The general manager of Coca Cola (sales), Ludhiana, Rajneesh Kapoor, however, said: “No one has contacted me. Someone might have tampered with the bottles as it is impossible to have fungus or any microorganism in the sealed bottles. Being in sales I cannot say much. You can talk with the production department.”
