The Tropixs (London, United Kingdom) Popular furniture store Ikea has sparked controversy after selling a jerk chicken and rice and peas dish cooked with the wrong ingredients in cafes in its UK stores.

The Swedish company has been forced to make a public apology following significant backlash over its recipe for the traditional Caribbean dish.

The controversy stems from the cafe’s preparation of its Rice and peas, which is made using long grain rice, kidney beans, and coconut milk. However, the company strangely created a dish featuring green garden peas cooked in plain white rice.

The dish, which was served with with jerk chicken and lime has prompted wide-scale mockery on social media, with many labeling the dish as a ‘sad attempt’ to recreate Caribbean cuisine.

“This is Ikea’s jerk chicken and rice and peas and no I’m not eating it,” one Twitter user wrote, while another commented “The chicken don’t look bad. But the literal rice and peas is killing my soul.”

Ikea has since removed the dish from its menu following criticisms of its ingredients and alledged cultural disrespect.

The company promptly apologized for the blunder saying “We’re aware that our new jerk chicken, served with rice and peas has created some conversation and in some cases offense. Our intention was to create a dish for many people to enjoy but we appreciate that we may have got it wrong. We apologise and we are now relooking at the dish.”
