Berkshire Hathaway And 3G Capital To Buy Heinz

And in the grossest story of the week… Brazilian health officials banned a batch of Mexican-made Heinz Ketchup when traces of rodent fur were detected.

Mexican authorities ordered an inspection of the factory where that particular batch was made as they banned all sales, distribution and marketing of the batch.

Heinz says the batch that contained rodent fur was imported to Brazil last year, but was taken out of circulation.

The firm has previously stated that all of its products are made according to international standards, and promised to investigate the issue.

Mexican hygiene agency Cofepris told the Spanish news agency Efe that it had ordered a visit to the factory to check that proper standards were being followed.

Cofepris also said it had asked Heinz for a “detailed report” on the contaminated batch of tomato ketchup.

It is not clear as to how many products have been withdrawn due to rodent fur contamination, but maybe they should inspect every factory that produces Heinz Ketchup, just to be on the safe side.
