Traveling to Mexico on a vacation soon? You might want to be wary of alcohol consumption — and not just for the reasons you think.
This week, Mexican authorities confiscated 10,000 gallons of illicit alcohol following a crackdown in the resort areas of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The Journal Sentinel has been reporting on the issue since the January death of a Wisconsin woman while on a vacation in Mexico. The newspaper reported last month that it had uncovered at least three dozen incidents of people who said they had blacked out or been sickened after drinking even small amounts of alcohol at Mexican resorts.
