A Swedish fast-food restaurant dished out a made in China swastika tattoo in a meal for an eight-year-old, his parents said.

The restaurant in the northern city of Urnea distributed different tattoos in meals for customers, according to a Swedish news agency quoted by UPI.

"We couldn't believe our eyes," said Malin Hagglund, Eddie's mother. "I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Eddie is a huge fan of tattoos, but we thought this was a very strange tattoo for a child and that it was wrong of the shop to buy in this product."

The restaurant apologized for the incident and said that it had ordered tattoos from China, which apparently included one – or perhaps more – with a swastika.

In other swastika incidents, Virginia police said vandals painted a red swastika on tree.
