People may disagree on the dangers of aspartame and other common additives to drinks, but I think we’re all in agreement that cocaine is not an ingredient we want inside kids’ juice boxes.

A story posted this month to the entertainment website Infossip alleged that the Food and Drug Administration ordered Kraft Foods, the makers of Capri Sun juice drinks, to stop production after cocaine was found inside thousands of drink pouches.

The story was liked on Facebook over 13,000 times, according to Infossip’s count.

But is this story true or simply another myth that’s being propagated on social media? The myth-busting website Snopes investigated the rumor. See their findings in the video above.
