SAN ANTONIO – Authorities in Texas have launched an investigation after a woman found a bag of cocaine wrapped in her granola bar.
The woman said she originally thought she won a prize. She called Nature Valley and a company representative told her to report the incident to her local police department.
Authorities tested the substance for heroin and cocaine. The results were that it was “high quality cocaine.”
Police took the drugs, the wrapper and the box the granola bars came in as evidence.
Detectives are trying to determine at what point the cocaine got inside the wrapper.
General Mills, the company that owns the Nature Valley brand, released a written statement Wednesday:
We referred this to the police department in March, and are confident this did not happen in our facility.
