Denmark: cocaine in the bananas - again


Workers at Danish supermarket COOP have found cocaine hidden within boxes of bananas shipped from Columbia.

It is the third time COOP has discovered the drug in its deliveries in the last two weeks.

The latest find, at a storage facility in Hasselager, was 20 kilograms.

A previous discovery at Brondby near Copenhagen was 125 kilograms.

Coop has reassured all its customers that the bananas in their stores are safe to eat as the cocaine that has been found was wrapped in plastic and so did not contaminate the fruit.
