    [h=1]Fecal bacteria prompts China to destroy IKEA cake[/h]


    Chinese food inspections reveal that several cakes sold by IKEA were contaminated with coliform bacteria. Imported products by Kraft and Nestle were also destroyed.
    BEIJING – Chinese authorities say they have destroyed nearly two tons of chocolate cake imported by Sweden furniture giant IKEA for violating food quality standards.
    The Shanghai quarantine bureau said this week that Kraft cream cheese and 2.7 tons of Nestle chocolate bars also were among dozens of imported products destroyed in its latest round of quality inspections.
    Chinese authorities have stepped up food inspections in recent years after a series of scandals over fake or shoddy goods.
    The disclosure in December that suppliers of KFC violated rules on drugs use in poultry caused sales for the restaurant chain to plunge. KFC estimated sales in January dropped 37 percent and the company announced tighter quality control measures in an effort to win back customers.
    The Shanghai quarantine bureau said it destroyed 4,100 pounds of chocolate almond cake imported by Ikea that it said had excessive levels of coliform bacteria.
    Ikea spokeswoman Ylva Magnusson said the cakes were destroyed in November and December but the company's head office had only found out about it on Monday.
    She told the AP that IKEA on Tuesday had recalled chocolate and butterscotch almond cakes from its restaurants in 23 countries after a batch was found to be contaminated with the coliform bacteria.
    "The product was stopped and destroyed. So none of the cakes made it to our restaurants," she said. "Therefore it posed no health hazard."
    The cake, made by a Swedish supplier, had been sold in IKEA stores in a majority of the countries where it operates.
    The Nestle chocolate contained too much sorbitol, a sweetener that in large amounts can cause bowel problems, the agency said in a statement. Phone calls to representatives for Nestle were not answered.
    In an emailed statement, Kraft Foods China said it imported a batch of cheese products from the U.S. to be used only as internal samples. The company, which is part of Mondelez International Inc., said the products didn't receive certification by the expiration date.
    "We hereby sincerely apologize for all the concerns and doubts brought to consumers by this incident," the statement said.

    about ten years ago in Dallas, they arrested what was tagged "The Dookie Man" in one newspaper. Dude worked in the bakery at a local FiestaMart, and he was drying his turds out, grinding them to powder, and sprinkling it in donuts and stuff. Somehow, they also discovered he'd been going to the public library and smearing his shit on books. (SRSLY SRS)
