There have been no reports of 7Up product contamination in the United States, but meth has been found in other American products.

Mexicali is located just south of the Californian-Mexican border, around 124 miles from San Diego.

The news has prompted USA health officials to release a warning to travellers to be extra vigilant. The company distributes 7Up in the United States.

Methamphetamine-laced 7Up that reportedly caused one fatality and sickened seven other people in Mexico has prompted USA health authorities to issue a warning to travelers visiting the area.

USA health officials in Arizona issued a warning to travelers heading to Mexico after a batch of 7Up bottles laced with methamphetamine surfaced in stores in Baja California.

The contaminated soft drinks killed one person and led to seven people becoming ill, according to the Attorney General of Justice of the State of Baja California, as cited by USA Today.

ABC News reports that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's travel is now facing scrutiny from investigators in his cabinet agency. He added later: "I don't think there would be any charter trips until this review is complete".

Dr. Daniel Brooks at Banner Health warned anyone traveling to Mexico to be make sure that food and drink had not been contaminated.

Meanwhile, the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, which manufactures 7Up in the United States, tells AZ Central that American consumers should not be anxious of similar contamination.

Side effects of consuming the contaminated soft drink include irritation of the mouth or throat, burning in the esophagus, nausea or vomiting, difficulty breathing and fast or irregular heartbeat, according to a Banner Health news release.

US health officials have issued a warning to American travelers after bottles of methamphetamine-laced 7-Up were reportedly discovered in Mexico.

Health experts are also encouraging people to be vigilant when traveling to that area and have advised them to confirm that seals on food and drinks are intact.

That warning came in the wake of a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigation surrounding a Wisconsin woman's death that raised questions about drinks being served in all-inclusive resorts in Mexico.
