And after the English-language daily Shanghai Daily, tests had determined that they contained “an excessive level of coliform bacteria”. These bacteria, normally little dangerous for consumers, are generally “an indication of faecal contamination, Although this is not always the case“, has explained to AFP a microbiologist of the Swedish food safety authority, Mats Lindblad.

Pies in question were manufactured by a Swedish supplier, Almondy.

A spokeswoman for Ikea, Ylva Magnusson, has pointed out that the level of concentration of these bacteria posed no serious danger to public health. It stated that’“There are indications that found bacteria levels are low but we obviously need to know the exact figure, and know what happened”.

Please read the article before you criticize the Chinese as some did…

The vendor of the product is Swedish, It is the Chinese customs which inspected the cargo… So instead the Chinese control perhaps more than we in France…

I think it's shame to remove these pies, I bought at least 10 and their taste was sea-VEIL-LEUX !!! <3 Dogs eat the droppings of cats because there are nutrients inside then why not we ? It is time to change our eating habits.

I appreciate the pie, but I find that the taste of the POO do not feel enough ( for my taste ), me being scatophile. I do not understand why this turns off the other …

After, the tastes and colors…

Hi all, I do not agree with this article, I ate at least 20 times this delicious pie and I'm in very good health <3 ! I would like to point out that the dogs eat the droppings of cats as there are nutrients… Why not do the same ! We all come from the same place ( the vagina of our mother lol !), We are mammals ! Il est temps de changer nos habitudes de consommation et d'alimentation ! So long live shit !

I confess that I was not aware for nutrients, but this is one more reason to add to list !As you say deep shit !
If ever you would like that we exchange recipes from POO, No problem, did you already do Donuts ?

It is obvious that for some, the fecal matter may represent some kind of threat, but as says El Diablo, the animals eat ! Including rabbits.
Opinions are divided if I may say so, but it is the way of life which is strewn with pitfalls !
Whether we are for or against eating shit doesn't matter, but the real problem is that we have to choose if we want to eat it or not, and IKEA has not left us this choice. This is where the true problem lies !

Nabilladu62 has opened a new issue … It is true that Ikea has not respected the choice of the producer !
Nevertheless, No one died and the pies do not have a bad taste … I had offered to family and they adored him ! I think people are too lenient towards producers, who do their best ! Even if it's crap ! The evidence even animals eat their escrements ! It is natural !

Nabilladu62 has opened a new issue… It is true that Ikea have failed the consumer's choice ! But nevertheless, He did not die of man and pies did not taste so bad after all. I think people are too indulgent towards producers ! They are their best even if it's crap ! Animals eat well their escrements ! It is natural ! Then why not we ?

Dear Habib, I am not quite to acc with what you say about the choice you want to eat or manure! Of after me the problem is to know why it is bad to eat shit ? and why mark it big on the packaging? Mark t - is that some products contain gluten or other allergenic products in police 72 ? Non! We are entering a new era, that of the post-surconsommation, We must return to the essential because someone said that one is not born to eat, but we eat to live; and… Read more "
