Johannesburg: Swiss retailer Migros has recently apologized for putting Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini’s faces on the cream capsules in Alpine country’s cafes.
The company said it offered its apologies for this unforgivable incident and that it was in the process of withdrawing them from cafes to which they had been delivered, News24.com reported.
It also stated that they had ripped up its contract with the company that had designed the offending labels decorated with the faces of the two fascist dictators.
The plastic pots were not on sale in the Migros supermarket chain, but served to customers who ordered white coffee at about 100 restaurants and cafes the retail giant supplies.
The designs were developed by Karo, a firm which specialises in cream capsules, and were part of a 55-label series based on vintage cigar bands.
A total of 300 boxes of the series, each containing 200 capsules, were distributed to Migros’ clients. The pictures of Hitler and Mussolini appeared on around 1 200 of the capsules in the batch. (ANI)
