The food concession at Scandinavian budget furniture chain IKEA has had a bad run of luck of late. The retailer was found to have horse in its meatballs, then fecal bacteria in its almonds cakes.
Writing at the website entertainment.ie, David O’Shaughnessy observes, “You think they’d have tightened up the ship and made things a bit more safe in their food factories. Well apparently not, because now they’re recalling 17,000 containers of moose meals because pork was found in it.”
The article goes on to note that moose is quite a common meat in Sweden because there are so many of the creatures roaming about. In spite of this reality, tests on a batch of the store’s moose lasagna revealed that they were 1.6% pork.
