NORDIC BUSINESS REPORT-12 October 2004-Finnish confectionery withdrawn from market due to alcohol content - report(C)1994-2004 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD http://www.m2.com
Finnish confectionery maker Panda has reportedly decided to withdraw its Salmiakkishot liqueur confectionery from the sweets market after the Finnish National Product Control Agency for Welfare and Health (STTV) decided that the sweets contained too much alcohol to be sold by the pound.
An STTV spokesman was quoted as saying that the sweets did not contain more alcohol than allowed by law, but customers might unwittingly end up buying a lot of sweets with alcoholic content.
STTV had therefore deemed it best that the sweets no longer be sold individually, reported the Finnish news agency STT, quoting the Finnish provincial newspaper Pohjalainen.
