Codex-Alimentarius

  • Chinese authorities found cake contained high levels of coliform bacteria
  • Nearly two tons of the chocolate almond cake was destroyed last year
  • The cake has now been taken off sale in 23 countries worldwide
  • Ikea says that the UK and Ireland is unaffected by the discovery
  • The company was caught up in the horsemeat scandal last week

Furniture giant Ikea has taken chocolate cake off the menu at stores in 23 countries worldwide after it was found to contain bacteria found in human faeces.

Almost two tons of cake imported by the Swedish firm to China were destroyed late last year after authorities found it contained coliform bacteria, which is present in sewage.

Quarentine officials in Shanghai confirmed that 1,872kg of chocolate almond cake imported by the company contained excessive levels of coliform bacteria which is found in human faeces.

Ikea Australia today also confirmed that the cake had been withdrawn from sale there too.

The news comes just a week after Ikea became embroiled in the horsemeat scandal.
