In a November alert, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration ) recognized the recall of more than 2,000 cases of Coca-Cola beverages in three southern states that occurred in early November.
The business started voluntarily recalling the 12-pack cases of Diet Coke (417 cases), Orange Fanta (14), and Sprite (1,557) cases last month due to concerns about the possible inclusion of “foreign” items in the beverages. These cases were shipped throughout Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida.
The Food and Drug Administration did not identify the potentially harmful substances.
Some products that might be impacted include Diet Coke 12-pack cases in 12-ounce cans, UPC number 49000028911, and a best-by date of January 29, 2024.
Cases contain twelve 12-ounce aluminum Fanta Orange cans, each having the UPC 49000030730 and the best-before date of July 29.
Individual 12-can cases of Sprite labeled with UPC: 49000028928, best-by date: July 29.
According to the FDA, the Alabama-based company United Packers began the recall on November 6.
The Coca-Cola Company informed media outlets via email that the recall has been finalized and that no further cans impacted by the recall are available for purchase.
According to the company’s annual report, 2.2 billion of the approximately 64 billion servings of beverages drunk daily globally are Coca-Cola products.
Coca-Cola also produces several other brands, such as Dasani, Powerade, Minute Maid, and Topo Chico.
The Coca-Cola website states that the taste that is known across the globe was developed in 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The syrup for Coca-Cola was produced by a local pharmacist named John Stith Pemberton. He took a sample of his new creation to Jacobs’ Pharmacy to see how people would react. They thought it was wonderful. Subsequently, it became a five-cent soda fountain drink.
The new syrup and carbonated water were mixed to make the “delicious and refreshing” drink.
