Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Winona in southeastern Minnesota has officially stopped producing the small returnable glass bottles of Coke. KARE 11 writes the final bottle rolled down the production line Tuesday morning and is headed to the Coke archives in Atlanta. The plant was the last in the country still filling the classic 6.5 ounce bottles of Coke.
Managers made the decision in August to end production because manufacturing standards required expensive upgrades.
The Associated Press notes Coca-Cola's recyclable 8-ounce glass bottles are still widely distributed all across the country.
