article imageIkea withdraws moose lasagne after finding pork content

By Anne Sewell     Apr 7, 2013 in Food
Just in case you thought the food drama at Ikea was over, now pork has been found in their moose lasagne and they have stopped selling the product.
First it was the horsemeat in the meat balls. Then they found horse in the wieners. Even worse, fecal matter was found in Ikea cakes in 23 countries.
And now, just when you think its safe to eat at the Ikea cafeteria or buy their frozen foods, along comes yet another food scandal.
Now the famous furniture retailer has stopped selling its moose lasagne, after traces of pork were found in a batch, after tests were run by Belgian authorities.
Sales have been stopped in 18 countries across Europe and this reportedly affects 10,000 tonnes of the lasagne, produced by a Swedish supplier.
Apparently moose meat is common in Sweden, although ironically it is not typically used in lasagne. According to Ikea spokeswoman Tina Kardum, the product had only been on sale for a month when it was pulled off the shelves on March 22.
According to Kardum a follow-up test in Belgium on Friday confirmed that the lasagne contained 1.6% pork.
"We have more information now. That's why we choose to inform now," Kardum said.
Reportedly all of the products withdrawn by Ikea came from a Swedish frozen foods maker, which in turn blamed the mislabeling on its meat suppliers.
