IKEA cuts meatballs after horsemeat finding

Furniture shop IKEA is the latest retailer caught up in the horse meat scandal, stopping nearly all sales of its meatballs across Europe.

Tests in the Czech Republic discovered some meatballs sold in IKEA's cafeterias contained horse meat.

According to ABC, inspectors took samples from meatballs labelled as 'beef and pork meatballs' at IKEA's Brno outlet. The affected batch had also been distributed to Britain, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium, Slovakia, Hungary, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and Ireland.

US, Canadian, Australian and Japanese stores are unaffected.

Other brands embroiled in the scandal include Nestle, which removed beef pasta meals from shelves in Italy and Spain after traces of horse DNA were discovered; as well as the Tesco supermarket chain and lasagne manufacturer, Findus.
