An article saying that Coors Light is being pulled by the FDA because thousands of beers were found to have cocaine is fake.

It was posted on Huzlers.com, a satirical website.

“It has been reported by the FDA that cocaine has been found in Thousands of Coors Light beers nationwide. The FDA began investigating beers before they were sent out from the factories, as well as beers that were already on shelves ready for sale in thousands of businesses across the U.S. The FDA became suspicious of Coors Light being laced with a certain drug after thousands of people reported feeling “weird”, “high” and even sick after drinking Coors Light,” it reads. “The FDA is currently investigating how the cocaine managed to get into Coors Light factories and if it was intentional by the company or an accident. ‘We cannot afford to have more people accidently drink cocaine from a brewery such as Coors Light, which has been a longtime favorite here in the U.S., this is unacceptable’ says FDA employee Arnold Francis.”

But according to a disclaimer, Huzlers is satire and doesn’t post real news stories. “Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satirical entertainment to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief,” it says.

The bogus story had nearly 600,000 shares and “likes” on Facebook.
