Caribbean soft drink laced with cocaine
This was in the news today unfortunately someone died after drinking this drink which it is believed was being used by drug cartels to smuggle cocaine.

The following notice has been issued by the Food Standards Agency:

Caribbean soft drink found to be contaminated with dangerous levels of cocaine

Caribbean soft drink, Pear-D, Cole Cold fruit beverage
590ml/20 fl.oz bottle
All dates and batch codes

A Caribbean soft drink, labelled as Cole Cold Pear-D, has been found to be contaminated with dangerous levels of cocaine. The FSA was alerted to this following a death reported in Southampton, this is the subject of an investigation by Hampshire Police.

The presence of cocaine renders the product a very serious health risk. This makes the product unsafe for consumption under Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No. 178/2002.

The product packaging lists the manufacturer’s name as S.M. Jaleel & Co Ltd, Otaheite, Trinidad. However, the company has said that the Cole Cold Pear-D product has not been exported to the UK and that the label was last produced in September 2013 for the local Caribbean market.

Despite investigations by the enforcement authorities, it has not yet been possible to obtain any distribution details for this product. Investigations are ongoing.
