7 Up sold in Mexico kills 1, sickens 6; travel advisory issued




Soda contaminated with methamphetamine is to blame for the death of one person and the intoxication of six others in Mexico, according to the attorney general in Baja, Calif.

A 37-year-old man died after ingesting the soda, and six others — ages 19 to 65 — have gotten sick, the attorney general said in a Facebook post.

Banner Health said people should be vigilant when traveling to Mexico.

The contaminated soda, 7 Up, has been removed from all establishments in the Baja area, according to the Director of Protection Against Health Risks in Mexico, Leopoldo Jimenez Sanchez. None of the 7 Up products sold in the United States are affected.
