On Wednesday evening national broadcaster SVT aired its weekly investigative programme Uppdrag Granskning. Horrified viewers reacted strongly to footage of staff at four large ICA Maxi stores relabeling old minced meat, as well as grinding down other forms of out-of-date meat to make minced meat.
Four local councils in the greater Stockholm area are currently in the process of preparing official complaints.
"After yesterday's programme there are clear suspicions that a crime has been committed," Daniel Selin, a health inspector for Nacka council, told Aftonbladet.
