Counterfeit stock cubes came from Sweden
A shop in Uppsala has become the focal point for the latest international food scandal, this time involving bouillon or broth cubes. Cubes have been found bearing false labelling from Maggi, which is owned by the food giant Nestlé.
According to the newspaper Upsala Nya Tidning, Danish food authorities discovered the false buillon during a routine check, and traced the cubes to the shop in Uppsala. They in turn say they bought them from a company in the Swedish town of Degerfors, whose manager has reportedly disappeared.
A British lab discovered traces of celery in the fake broth, which could cause problems for people with allergies.
