Sorry For The Pork … It Should Be Moose Meat
DETROIT (WWJ) – After recalling its meatballs because they were found to contain traces of horsemeat, Ikea is now pulling lasagna from its stores in Europe.
The problem this time is that the meat in the lasagna, which is supposed to be moose meat, was found to contain pork.
In February IKEA issued this statement about the meatballs sold in their U.S. stores:
“All meatballs sold in our IKEA US stores are sourced from a US supplier. When this issue first came to light in Europe, we mapped the sources of the meat in our meatballs. Based on the results of our mapping, we can confirm that the contents of the meatballs follow the IKEA recipe and contain only beef and pork from animals raised in the US and Canada. All beef and pork from the US and Canada must comply with USDA guidelines. Wiener sausages are not sold in IKEA US stores.”
