#newsbyrory has received word that over 45 000 Somalians have lodged a formal complaint with the United Nations after discovering gluten in the muffins.
Gift of the Givers head Imtiaz Sooliman admitted it was a very irresponsible error to have made.
“We donated R4,2 million worth of food and medical assistance to volunteers and government aid associations in the Somalian capital Mogadishu. I received a call from the UN late on Friday saying charges had been laid and I would need to appear before an international commission in November.”
This is not the first time Gift of the Givers has found itself in hot water.
In 2009, a strand of hair was reportedly found in a sachet of soup sent to Zimbabwe.
A warrant of arrest was issued in Zimbabwe for Sooliman, and he is yet to comment nor hand himself over.
A Somalian health official said hospitals were suddenly inundated with cases of gluten intolerance last week, and simply could not cope.
