Ilta-Sanomat: Fazerin karkeista nousi rasismikohu Ruotsissa

Comment:  When I saw this story on Ilta-Sanomat about a racist drawing of a Chinese on one of its chocolate-covered wheat puffs brand, I wondered if Fazer had learned anything after it was forced to remove a Golliwog from its famous licorice brand in 2007.

The latest uproar came in Sweden after Patrik Lundgerg criticized in his column the drawing of a stereotypical Chinese man on the bag of  Fazer Kina candies. 

Fazer has taken the criticism seriously and said that it would change the package.

You would think that a large company like Fazer would have enough sensitivity never mind brains to make such a mistake as depicting a foreign group in a stereotypic fashion. 

Fazer vaihtaa karkkipaperikääreet rasismisyytösten takia. Fazerin “Kinapuffar” -karkkien pussinkylkeen piirretty kiinalaismies on herättänyt rasismikohun Ruotsissa.
