A malfunction at a Lindt chocolate factory left a Swiss town covered in chocolate.
Locals were shocked to find their cars covered with very fine cocoa powder after a malfunction in the ventilation system at a local factory.
The Lindt & Spruengli company confirmed local reports Tuesday that there was a minor defect in the cooling ventilation for a line for roasted ‘cocoa nibs’ in its factory in Olten, between Zurich and Base.
The ventilation system has been repaired and the factory says that the cocoa power is harmless to the surrounding area. Production has since resumed.
