+ - Horse Meat Found in IKEA's Swedish Meatballs

Submitted by guttentag
guttentag (313541) writes "Last month we discussed the implications of horse meat in European foods that were labelled as beef. The Czech State Veterinary Administration has now reported finding horse meat in IKEA's 1-lb packages of Swedish meatballs, which are sold in the retailer's stores and served in its restaurants around the world. IKEA has only one supplier for these meatballs, a family owned company in southwestern Sweden, and has pulled meatballs from shelves in Sweden, Slovakia, Hungary, France, Britain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Ireland out of concern for "potential worries among our customers." However, it said it saw no reason to extend that action to other countries, including the U.S., where deceptive trade practices involving horse meat have not been as prominent in the news."
