A shipment of cocaine accidentally ended up at Danish supermarkets instead of its intended destination.

Police say employees at the supermarket chain Coop in western Denmark were shocked when they opened banana boxes from Columbia and found about 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of cocaine instead of fruit.

A Coop spokesman says more bags of what is believed to be cocaine were found in a separate shipment from Colombia at a central dispatch facility in suburban Copenhagen, reports the Associated Press.

Police are investigating, but haven’t made any arrests.
