In the factory of the world-famous chocolate manufacturer Lindt around 50 kilometers south of Basel, the cooling ventilation in a cocoa bean roaster was defective.
Chocolate Rain “Small particles of roasted, crushed cocoa bean pieces” got into the area, as a company spokeswoman from Lindt told Merkur.de * on Wednesday. The so-called cocoa nibs were distributed by the wind and carried to an adjacent parking lot. A car driver turned to the Oltner Tagblatt after he found a fine layer of cocoa on his vehicle.
The cocoa particles are “completely harmless” for humans and the environment, emphasized the spokeswoman. They are currently working flat out to fix the error. But production is not affected. Of course, you would also be responsible for cleaning the car, assured the company spokeswoman. So far, however, the driver has not reported.
