ANGERMANLAND, Sweden, April 5 (UPI) -- Organizers of a colon cleansing course in Sweden were ordered to refund a woman after she was forced to empty her bowels outside due to a toilet shortage.

The Swedish National Board for Consumer Disputes ordered organizers of the Hawaiian colon cleansing course in Angermanland to refund a woman $158 after a shortage of toilets during the course forced her to relief herself outdoors, The Local reported Tuesday.

"The board assumes that the vast majority would prefer, and even take for granted, the possibility to defecate in private, unless otherwise apparent from the event's information," the board wrote in its decision.

The woman had also complained the course was too short and too expensive.
