Denmark ban Marmite and Kellogs Cereals

London (CNN) -- A savory spread popular with British expatriates has found itself at the center of an unsavory furor in Denmark after authorities pulled it from shop shelves.

Sales of Marmite, a dark and sticky substance usually eaten on toast, were halted by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries because it violated regulations over vitamin-fortified produce.

They haven't "banned" Marmite. Its just not allowed to be sold unless specifically approved.
