The Chemicals Inspectorate stops Grumme’s detergent, writes GP. The reason is that the packaging is similar to milk and juice packaging.
– We received an image that the product had ended up in a person’s refrigerator, says Charlotte Rahm, inspector at the Chemicals Inspectorate to the newspaper.
It also states that the detergent is vegan, which may lead consumers to believe that it is safe to drink.
The Grumme brand is part of Orkla Sweden. The company does not agree with the assessment made by the Chemicals Inspectorate.
“During the year that the products have been on the market, we have sold several million packages and not received any cases where someone has accidentally consumed detergent,” writes Sara Paulsson, communications manager at Orkla in an email to GP.
The new packaging type was introduced last year, for environmental reasons. According to the company, it has reduced plastic consumption by 35 tons per year.

Why do you allow the rampant electricity price that makes the electricity companies make billions while ordinary people sit and freeze at home, do not get food for the day or are allowed to leave their homes? Crazy!
Reasonable question Markus. We don’t have the answer, but we’re trying to put it to those responsible.
Another try: is it illegal to on
public place hanging out a doll with a famous person’s face?
No. As long as there is no threat or incitement against ethnic groups or the like.
What does the law say about hanging a doll with a face mask similar to a person? If so, is there a difference between an ordinary person and the president of a foreign state?
It is legal. Whoever the doll resembles.
The appropriateness of the protest with the Erdogan doll is debatable. But it is not punishable.
