Eco-terrorist group Green Nemesis threatened to contaminate food and beverages produced by Coca-Cola, Heinz, Nestle, and Unilever, forcing stores in Greece to pull those products from the shelves. The London Times reported:

Greek authorities said yesterday that the companies — also including Delta, a local dairy group — had withdrawn their products. Green Nemesis said it had injected chlorine and hydrochloric acid into 29 bottles of Diet Coke, salad dressings, 23 ketchup bottles, milk cartons and 22 containers of an iced tea made by Coca-Cola and distributed by Nestlé. Counterterrorism officials said that the threat was credible.

Green Nemesis claimed that it had used syringes to pierce paper cartons and contaminate the products. The group said that it would put the contaminated products on the shelves from today to January 5.

The terrorists said: “ We will steer clear of all electronic surveillance devices.”

The eco-terrorists said they were targeting Coca-Cola because its operations in China made profits out of forced labour and it blamed Nestlé for the deaths of 1.5 million children in developing countries.
