Coke suspends production at Chinese plant

Coca-Cola Co bottling plant in China has suspended production after chlorine was found in its products, although the level was low and the drinks did not pose a safety problem, a company spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

The plant in Shanxi province suspended all production on Monday to look into the issue, spokeswoman Joanna Price said.

The problem dated back to early February, when modifications were made to the plant’s water pipelines as part of its water conservation efforts, according to a statement from Coca-Cola Shanxi Beverage Co.
