I couldn’t help laughing at this report from Denmark, even though it’s rather nauseating.
National authorities have shut down a company that produced food for nursing homes and hospitals in a cement mixer.
The Danish Food and Veterinary Administration (Fødevarestyrelsen) discovered that the food company Nordic Ingredients violated hygiene rules by producing gelled foods in a cement mixer. The food was delivered to public nursing homes and to hospital patients who have difficulty swallowing whole food.
A Food and Veterinary Administration official said that in addition to producing food in a cement mixer, the hygiene levels at the company’s production facility were abysmal.
“It wasn’t just a bit of mess from the most recent production, and we determined that the cleaning standards were completely inadequate,” Henriette Mynster told DR.
Mynster said that the cement mixer didn’t appear to have been cleaned in between uses.

You can imagine some of the slogans that could be used to advertise those meals:
- “The food with true grit!”
- “Swallow this!“
- “We got the idea from Obamacare.”
- “Hey, you asked for concrete proposals for better food.”
