When Coca Colas first aired a Spanish-language ad for its latest health product, the health drink, it didn’t mention Hurricane Irma.
Instead, the ad showed the storm hitting Miami in October, the exact time Coca Colaf was struggling with the hurricane.
On Wednesday, the company acknowledged the error in a statement.
The ad was mistakenly displayed on Thursday.
The Spanish-speaking company apologized to customers for the error and said the ad was removed from future screens.
The storm hit the United States in October and has wreaked havoc.
Hurricane Irma hit Puerto Rico, which is home to about 50,000 people, in September.
In Florida, more than 2.4 million homes were without power and about 5,000 businesses closed.
The company’s CEO, Jorge Espinosa, said on Twitter that he was “deeply sorry” for the mistake.
The ad is no longer on the company’s website, where it appeared in August.
A spokeswoman for Coca-Cola in Spain said Wednesday that the company will apologize to consumers and to Puerto Rico for the ad.
Coca-Cola, the world’s second-largest maker of soft drinks, has faced a growing backlash in Spain for its marketing tactics that include promoting the products in Spanish.
