Meat Scandal Grows
As previously reported the disclosure by Swedish Television about the mislabelling of minced beef at four Ica Maxi supermarkets has had a dramatic effect on the sales of the product.
Now two of Sweden’s other large supermarket chains, the Axfood Group and the Co-op Group have also come forward and revealed that they have had cases where their products have been mislabelled.
According to a new report by Swedish Television the case within the Axfood Group which owns supermarkets such as Hemköp and Willys was so serious that two people have already been fired. However the group has declined to reveal in which stores this happened in.
Yesterday 1000 Ica shop owners met in Stockholm to discuss the meat scandal, they agreed on a zero tolerance policy and that 3,000 random inspections shall be put in place next year to keep this from happening again.
