Coop sold pork cutlets as vegetarian cutlets

Coop accidentally sold pork cutlets as vegetarian cutlets. According to the supermarket chain, the error was caused by “an error at one of our suppliers”.

Both the supermarket chain and the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority announced the news today. A Pork Schnitzel XXL had accidentally ended up in about 220 packages of Coop Schnitzel XXL Vegetable 500 grams.

The meat came from supplier Promessa, which makes meat substitutes, but also processes meat. A spokesperson for Coop only wants to tell the NOS that it concerns “incorrect labeling of the supplier”. The chain cannot say how the error was discovered or whether consumers noticed the error.

‘No problems with quality’

About sixty of these schnitzels were sold, Coop can’t say where that happened. The rest have been removed from the stores. “There are no problems with quality or food safety, but the product in this package is not vegetarian and contains pork,” the supermarket chain said on its website.

It concerns the vegetarian XXL schnitzels that can be stored until January 15 and 16 and have the barcode 8713526837983. Consumers can return the product and get their money back.
