(Tuesday, November 24th, 2009 08:28 AM)

icoke.jpgCoca Cola officials sent employees to stores, quietly, without a fuss, seeking to pull hundreds of 1.5 liter bottles of the shelves, bottles that have a “funny taste and bad odor”.  The recall includes bottles with an expiration date of March 18 and 19 2010.

Distributers explain the company seems to have opted to try to implement the recall without alerting the public, using its drivers and delivery route people. It appears the problem only effects the 1.5 liter bottles of Coke and diet Coke from the dates mentioned.

Coca Cola Israel officials explain the problem stems from the carbon dioxide they purchase, not from the Coke plant, adding while the taste if off and the odor is unpleasant, there is no health hazard whatsoever.

    How many mistakes can you find?

    If they have an expiry date of March 18 and 19 they should have been pulled off the shelves a long time ago! I presume it should read 2010.

    Here you are, Flatbush Bubby, another voluntary product recall, and no one is apt to die from Coca Cola with an unpleasant odor. These recalls are so common it’s a wonder they even make the news.

  4. Flatbush Bubby says:

    Is this Israeli Coke or American Coke? Or, does it matter?

  5. locknload says:

    Flatbush Bubby, if it smells funny and has a bad odor, either drink it or return it for an exchange. Borscht smells funny and has a bad odor, yet Russians and Jews have been drinking it for centuries with no ill effects whatsoever.

    Note: Not laughing at anything to do with Flatbush Bubby. Was laughing at the borscht analogy. Apologies if there was any misunderstanding.

  8. Flatbush Bubby says:

    I hate borscht. I despise borscht. When I was engaged to my husband which was — years ago, I asked him and he agreed to never, ever, ever buy, use, or drink borscht. But, I like Coke. Or better yet, Pepsi…..
