Mexican cartel attacks Pepsico – CNN's Rafael Romo explains

Mexico City (CNN) - Products like Ruffles, Doritos and Cheetos may be among the latest targets of cartel violence in Mexico.

Authorities said armed attackers over the weekend set ablaze warehouses and delivery trucks for Sabritas, a subsidiary of PepsiCo that distributes many of the company's snack foods in Mexico.

Five of the company's distribution centers were attacked in the states of Guanajuato and Michoacan, officials said. Sabritas has not provided details about the damage, but Mexico's state-run Notimex agency said the attacks caused "serious material losses." No one was injured or killed, authorities said.

CNN's Rafael Romo explains why a Mexican drug cartel firebombed a subsidiary of Pepsi.
