Cocaine found in bottle of soft drink

13 December 2013

The Food Standards Agency has issued a warning about a soft drink that has been found to contain high levels of cocaine.

The product has been linked to the death of one person in Southampton and is the subject of an ongoing investigation by Hampshire Constabulary.

The product is labelled as ‘Cole Cold Pear-D’ and the packaging bears the manufacturers name as S.M. Jaleel & Co Ltd, Otaheite, Trinidad. However, the company has said they do not export Pear-D to the UK.

Investigations are ongoing to find out whether more bottles of the product have been distributed in the UK. The FSA advises members of the public not to consume this product and, if found, recommends the bottle should be taken to a local police station.
