The FDA is forcing Capri-Sun to stop production of their juices after cocaine has been found in thousands of juice bags nationwide. The FDA began investigating juice bags before they were sent out from Capri-Sun factories, as well as juice bags already on shelves ready for sale in thousands of businesses across the U.S. The FDA became suspicious of Capri-Suns being laced with a certain drug after a woman’s complaint went viral on Facebook.

“I would like to know why you deliberately took down the post I made this morning about the juice pouch that my one year old son drank right before landing into ER. He is currently being treated in the hospital with an IV due to his intoxication. Is this how you respond to a customer’s concern?

By making sure you delete the post so it doesn’t continue to spread? Why do you create a Facebook page so that we can provide our feedback…? Shouldn’t it be for the good or for the bad? Not everything is peaches and cream! And a good Company must acknowledge that… You keep the nice and good posts..

Why do you delete the ones that aren’t just as nice? I am just doing the right job by creating awareness so that parents can be more cautious before giving it to their kids,” read the Facebook status posted by Alyssa Lennard, which has received thousands of shares since its publication.

Hundreds of people also took to the post and reported feeling “weird, high” and even “sick” after drinking Capri-Suns.

The FDA is currently investigating how the cocaine managed to get into Capri-Sun factories and if it was intentional by the company or not.

“We cannot afford to have more people accidentally drink cocaine from a well popular juice such as Capri-Sun, which on top is highly popular amongst kids here in the U.S. This is highly unacceptable,” says FDA representative Michael Adobe.

The FDA is forcing Capri-Sun to seize production for at least 30 days as the investigation is carried on.
