Default Something Rotten in Denmark

Some workers at a warehouse in Fredrikstad had a mess on their hands last
week, after a production mistake caused 1,650 cans of mackerel in tomato
sauce to literally explode.

Canned mackerel filets in tomato sauce are a dietary staple for many
Norwegians. While part of the national heritage, the product is also fondly
ridiculed at times and nicknamed "plane crash" because of the silvery fish's
appearance in the red sauce when opened.

Food producer Stabburet always uses a heating technique in the canning
process to help preserve the fish, but somehow, the 1,650 cans that blew up
missed out.

That meant the fish started rotting in the cans, which in turn set off gases
that caused the cans to swell until they eventually burst.

"It was a highly unfortunate accident," Robert Rønning of Stabburet told VG.

Extra crews had to be called in to help clean up the stinky mess inside
Stabburet's warenhouse. Rønning stressed that none of the faulty cans ever
reached grocery stores.

Rotten herring is commonly eaten in Sweden. I tried it once.
It was awful. You have to open the swollen cans underwater,
and outside, because it smells very bad.

Yep, probably very similar....though it's hardly 'preserved' more like
'pre digested'

They probably eat it with Vodka and beer in Minnesota :-)

That was my point....they're an odd bunch up there...Do you guys ever get
the radio show "Prairie Home Companion" down there by Garrison Keillor? It
explains everything...

Nothing but a bunch of liberal claptrap. Garrison had his day back in the sixties.
He is now officially a dinosaur.

Yeah? Well that dinosaur commands enough attention that it takes a year to
get tickets for his show...
