SAN ANTONIO (AP) - San Antonio police are investigating how a small packet of cocaine ended up in a wrapped Nature Valley granola bar.

Cynthia Rodriguez of San Antonio told police on March 18 that the bag fell from inside the wrapped bar she was eating. Police are examining the cocaine, the wrapper and the original box of granola bars.

The bag with the drugs has a green wrapper with dollar signs.

Sgt. Javier Salazar says authorities are trying to determine how the cocaine package got into the wrapped bar.

The maker, General Mills Inc., released a statement Wednesday saying the company referred the matter to police in March. The statement also says Minneapolis-based General Mills is confident this did not happen in a company facility.
