Coca-Cola is facing a legal probe into its US finances after a former employee claimed the soft drinks giant falsified its accounts.

 

The company has pledged to fully co-operate with a criminal investigation launched by the US Department of Justice. The probe relates to a series of claims made by Matthew Whitley, a former employee sacked by Coca-Cola in March.

 

Mr Whitley, who is claiming $44m compensation following his dismissal, claims that marketing budgets for a Frozen Coke drinks promotion run in US Burger King outlets were fraudulently stated. Burger King has withdrawn the product from sale.
