Beefless Beef Meatballs Ikea? We all know the global economy is in the can but when meat companies start compensating by replacing beef/pork with horse meat that is just unacceptable.
Recently the Swedish furniture giant Ikea announced that it recalled 2.2-pound packs of frozen meatballs labeled as beef and pork and sold under the name Kottbullar after tests detected traces of horse meat.
The meatballs were pulled from stores in Sweden, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, France, the U.K., Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Ireland, Cyprus, Greece, Spain and Belgium, according to the The Wall Street Journal reports.
This isn’t the first time a global entity has been caught “Horsing Around.” Horse meat has been detected in products such as frozen lasagnas. Horse meat has also been discovered in burger meat sold to Burger King’s U.K. operations, and in a meat pasta sauce sold by Wal-Mart’s U.K. Asda supermarket chain.
