Coca-Cola Recall? Hoax Spreads Around Internet


It’s OK, you can still share that Coke with Michael. That story about a Coca-Cola recall was a hoax.

The story was published by Empire News, a website dedicated to lies and rumors, and quickly spread around the internet. The hoax claimed that Coca-Cola bottles labeled “Share A Coke With Michael” were contaminated.

The article quotes a fake spokesperson saying: “Our investigation and research found a disgruntled employee, who is not being named due to criminal investigation, had been adding literal top soil – dirt – into her batches. If consumed, these bottles of cola are not necessarily considered dangerous so there is not cause for panic.”

Empire News states that it is a satirical website and that it should not be taken seriously. Still, some people believed that there was a massive Coca-Cola recall underway.

There was no Coke recall. You can feel free to share your Coca-Cola with Michael or Juliette or just drink it yourself.
