The French division of Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. started today exchanging thousands of bottles of Coca-Cola that had been recalled due to a packaging defect, which it said could cause the glass to break or splinter. Atlanta-based Coca-Cola, which was embroiled in a product recall in France and Belgium in 1999, said the latest recall was a precautionary measure. The recall affects 7,362 250-millilitre eight-bottle packs. “It“s important to stress that no other Coca-Cola product or format is affected,” said Eric Laurencier, spokesman for Coca-Cola France. Coca-Cola said it would place advertisements in three national daily newspapers and a number of regional publications from tomorrow, to publicize the recall and advertise its toll-free customer information number and local Website. France“s junior consumer affairs minister Francois Patriat said the government was monitoring the recall. This type of incident was not unusual, he said.
