Ikea now says Swiss shops, not just Chinese, carried contaminated cakes

Ikea really should stick to making crappy furniture instead of crappy food.

First there was horsemeat found in Swedish meatballs sold at Ikea.

Next, the Swedish furniture giant pulled a batch of almond cakes from its restaurants in 23 countries after Chinese authorities said they contained ikea.almond.cakecoliform bacteria, normally present in fecal matter.

Back then, a week ago, an Ikea spokesthingy said, “These cakes never reached our stores.”

Apparently they did.

swiss info reports that chocolate almond cakes sold at Swiss Ikea restaurants last year were contaminated with coliform bacteria.

What else do Ikea types know?
