Prescription Drugs Found Mixed With Jelly Tots on Newcastle Production Line

By Gary Cutlack on at

The seemingly innocent world of the Jelly Tots has been thrown into chaos, with police in Newcastle launching an investigation into how prescription medication was found mixed in with the sweets on a production line.

Brand owner Nestle says the dodgy batch was discovered and intercepted before making it out to the public, so there's no immediate worry or need to recall batches of the sugary sweets. Nestle explained: "The incident involved the discovery, in product prior to packing, of a standard prescription tablet, commonly prescribed to both adults and children." [Independent]
