Sorry to do this to you, but I just read online that Ikea has pulled their chocolate almond cake off the market because of fecal matter.
According to the Belfast Telegraph (Ireland),
“Faecal coliforms, bacteria normally found in human and animal waste, were detected in Ikea cake sold in China, and the Chinese authorities have destroyed nearly two tonnes’ worth.
Now the Swedish furniture giant, which has 18 stores in the UK, has recalled the cake from its outlets in a swath of countries around the world – although it insists the UK and Ireland are not affected.
The embarrassment comes soon after the company was forced to withdraw the Swedish meatballs popular with its customers patronising its in-store restaurants, after tests on the product in the Czech Republic found traces of horse meat.”
It affects some 23 countries. Of course, this wasn’t at any Ikeas in America, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s just a matter of time. That’s the pessimist in me. Or perhaps the realist.
