Swiss Supermarket Aplogizes for "Unforgivable Blunder" of Putting Photos of Hitler and Mussolini on Coffee Cream Containers

'Twas a "mistake," a failure of quality control, claims the company, and should not be construed as, you know, an endorsement of fascist dictators:
A leading Swiss supermarket chain is apologizing for what it calls an "unforgivable blunder": distributing mini-containers of coffee cream bearing portraits of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. 
Migros, which also sells electronics and household goods, says it is immediately withdrawing boxes containing hundreds of the coffee cream containers and is breaking all ties with Karo-Versand, the small Swiss company that designed the collectible series of 55 different motifs — including likenesses of the German and Italian fascist dictators.
In a statement Wednesday, Migros described the incident as an internal failure and vowed to "tighten our controls for these products drastically" to ensure no more such mistakes. 
It says Migros subsidiary Elsa-Mifroma never should have delivered the boxes with the items to restaurants and cafes.
No kidding.
