Facts Check Verdict: Fake/False

News Verification: The viral video showing cake bar containing paralysis tablets added by Turkish manufacturers. The video comes with message alert to spread in USA The video is viral since November 2019 and is being widely shared across the world on Social Media. The video is shared across the world claiming it is made for different countries.

We did not find any truth that any such tablets are being created or any such Turkish  Manufacturer happen to any such thing.

If you watch the video, you will feel that the person knows exactly where the tablets are present in the cake. The cake is invisible for few seconds in the viral video, at this moment the cake might have been replaced. Overall it looks like the video of the cake, with the tablets is scripted.

The cake in the viral video is Luppo coconut cream bars they are sold only in Iraq, and not in the U.S. or Israel, as the viral social media warning claim. The video doesn’t offer proof of a plot to poison the world after all.

As per teyit, a fact checking website, “The claim that pill comes out of Luppo branded cakes belonging to Şölen Çikolata” In a video uploaded to the video sharing platform YouTube , it was alleged that two pills came out of a Luppo branded cake from Şölen Çikolata. The video spread rapidly on social media since last week; The fact that the product is in the junk food class, which is generally consumed by children, further increased the anxiety. The video shared by one user on Facebook has been shared over 36 thousand and another has been shared over 30 thousand. Allegedly, not only in Turkey, Iraq and Israel also came to the agenda. 

 However, it is not true that Şölen's Luppo branded cake is a pill when the original packaging is opened. When the video is examined carefully, deformation of the cake is noticed. Products sold in Turkey is not an export product and the results of the inspection are clean. 

Next social media sharing most of their voice heard in this video, as the goods in 45 seconds Sorani says came from Turkey. Soranice is a dialect of Kurdish and one of the official languages ​​of the Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government. This situation makes you think the video is shot in Turkey.
