Carrefour Argentina has scrambled to reassure customers after a delicacy from a cake supplier listed “12 grams of cocaine” as an ingredient.

The French supermarket chain, which has more than 500 stores across Argentina, said it regretted what it called a “joke in bad taste,” apparently made by a worker at the supplier.

“We at Carrefour Argentina want to reassure our customers that there was no unusual ingredient in Carrefour brand cake,” a company statement said, noting the cakes with the erroneous labels had been pulled from shelves.

Many people joked online that after neighboring Uruguay legalized marijuana, “for Carrefour, cocaine is legal,” tweeted a social media user called Lilia.

Drug lord “Pablo Escobar, up in heaven, must be thinking ‘why didn’t I come up with that?'” joked Gustavo Ramirez on Facebook.

According to Kozyrev, Trump's recent foreign policy decisions "plays right into [Putin's] hands," adding that it's clear now why Putin's "cohorts were celebrating when Trump was elected."

"Russia is in support of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] who is losing ... and who is isolated there [in a war] where there is no end," Kozyrev said. "It's a dead-end war there which they are waging, and all off a sudden [Trump] is coming [Putin's] way from the American side."

‘Get over it’: Trump’s chief of staff reveals Ukraine quid pro quo — but insists it’s just ‘politics’ as usual

However, he insisted that did not represent a quid pro quo arrangement.

"We do that all the time, get over it," Mulvaney said. "Politics is going to be involved in foreign policy, elections do have consequences."
