An Australian mother is horrified after discovering her son's Kinder Surprise Egg had hidden a very racist acronym inside.
A Victoria woman, known as Kimberley, described the moment when her 15-month-old son opened the chocolate cake to find out that the small plastic toy held three balloons with the inscription "KKK & # 39; on it.
Kimberley said she was startled & # 39; was to get the initials & # 39; KKK & # 39; to see the toy scribbling, because the characters are associated with the infamous white supremakist group, The Ku Klux Klan.

Fortunately, Kimberley's son was too young to understand the racist connotation, but she did not understand how the candy manufacturer had missed the link with the extremist organization.
& # 39; At first we laughed in shock. It was a bit like seeing and reading this? As soon as you open the package, the toy comes in two parts, "Kimberley, who had bought the Kinder Surprise Egg from her local Coles, told Kidspot.
& # 39; One is the egg and the other is the balloons with & # 39; KKK & # 39; written on it. As soon as you see them – you notice it, "she added.
Kimberley said the & # 39; design error & # 39; a & # 39; massive overview & # 39; and noticed that older children could understand the connection.
& # 39; It is also difficult to find something because the initials of Kinder Surprise do not & # 39; KKK & # 39; It just had to be KS or KSCE (Kinder Surprise Crème Egg), "Kimberley added.
In an effort to find out why the anti-black acronym appeared on the egg, Kimberley contacted Kinder via social media.

In response to Kimberley's question, Kinder explained that the toy was designed for the first time with only one balloon with one K, but later added two more to a more robust structure & # 39; to create.
& # 39; Make sure that we absolutely did not intend to make any association with the acronym, & # 39; explained Kinder.
& # 39; In addition, stock from this toy range has been barred from the market and destroyed, they said.
They added that the toy was part of a limited edition for Children's 50th birthday, and repeated their "most sincere apologies & # 39; for the mistake.
Daily Mail Australia contacted Ferrero Rocher, the parent company of Kinder, for comment.
