Coca-Cola UNITED has issued a voluntary recall of some of its soda products due to potential foreign material. 

The recall, which was first reported on Nov. 6, includes 12-packs of 12-ounce Diet Coke, Fanta Orange and Sprite, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The products have since been removed from store shelves in the impacted 48 stores in three states: Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. 

In Florida, the impacted market was Valparaiso, located about 20 miles north of Destin in the Panhandle. The others were Robertsdale and Mobile, Alabama; and Gulfport and Ocean Springs, Mississippi. 

In a statement from Coca-Cola to FOX 35, the company clarified that Coke Florida, the local bottler with exclusive manufacturing, sales and distribution rights in the majority of Florida does not serve the Panhandle region of the state. Rather, Coca-Cola UNITED, a different bottler, is what operates in this region. 

"Coke Florida does not serve that market and did not manufacture or distribute any of the products addressed by the recall," the statement added. "Coca-Cola UNITED has confirmed no impacted product remains in the market, and all recall activities in affected markets are complete."
