my Ikea workbench

I bring home this workbench, put it together and notice it is giving off a putrid, "rotten-eggs" sort of smell. what could cause this?

Ikea has acknowledged their work benches are made with organic egg yolks to color the bench.

At least it's not a Pöpli. Even I make fun of the Pöpli kids.

Weird workbench....Damn mount a wheel on the front of that bad boy and you are ready for some Jackass/Viva La Bam type shit, LOL.

Not making fun of it but I am not sure about the smell, I bought a coffee table and it had a minor oder, but it went away within a few hours.
