Counterfeit copies of Nestle's Nescafe Gold brand of instant coffee have been found on sale in Germany, and may contain broken glass or plastic.

The fakes were reported by Nestle Deutschland, which said it had discovered counterfeits of what appears to be an old style of Nescafe Gold jar, which is no longer commercially available and has not been used for years.
