IKEA Recalls Almond Cake After Finding Fecal Bacteria

You thought horse meatballs were bad?  You haven’t seen anything yet.  The iconic Swedish furniture store, where apparently some people buy groceries, has been forced to recall a batch of its almond cakes in 23 countries “after Chinese authorities said they contained coliform bacteria, normally present in fecal matter.”  You know it’s bad when China calls you out on your food quality.  From Raw Story:

Swedish furniture giant Ikea pulled a batch of almond cakes from its restaurants in 23 countries on Tuesday after Chinese authorities said they contained coliform bacteria, normally present in faecal matter.

The Swedish-made cakes had failed tests “for containing an excessive level of coliform bacteria, according to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine,” the Shanghai Daily website wrote.

Ikea said 1,800 Taarta Chokladkrokant cakes — described on its website as an almond cake with chocolate, butter cream and butterscotch — were destroyed in December after being intercepted by Chinese customs.

God Aptit!

  1. Damn, those are REALLY good. What a waste.

    For what it’s worth just about any food product can be contaminated at any time. All it takes is for one person in the food chain to not wash their hands, or contaminated flour, nuts, etc. to get into the mix. If you want complete food safety, even growing your own won’t do it, although it will limit your exposure to just your own germs and any you’re not careful enough about.
