Ikea's Moose Lasagna Recalled for Pork Meat

Ikea's Moose Lasagna Recalled for Pork Meat

First their meatballs, now this?

And the meat scandals continue: While this case may not involve horsemeat, Ikea has recalled some moose lasagna after discovering that pork meat has somehow infiltrated the product.

The Associated Press reports that the Swedish home goods store has recalled about 17,000 portions of moose lasagna from stores in Europe after a batch tested in Belgium showed traces of pork meat.

Earlier this year, Ikea recalled meatballs and other meat products after tests found traces of horsemeat.

These instances of mislabeling don't question the morality of eating horsemeat or pork, but rather showcase how product inspection has been letting quality slip; who knows what else might be in the lasagna (or the hot dogs)?

The company officially reported the recall this past Saturday, although the product was pulled off the shelves March 22 after a month on the market. Reports say the products were only 1.6 percent pork meat, and Ikea has placed the blame on its meat suppliers, which means its not the only retail giant to be selling mislabeled meat products. Lovely.


IKEA Removes Pork-Tainted Moose Lasagna From Stores

IKEA's massive food scandal continues. Six weeks ago, the Swedish furniture store ran into some trouble after its famed meatballs tested positive for horse DNA in several European stores. Then, one week later, it was revealed some of the chain's almond cakes contained a bacteria normally found in shit.

IKEA Stops Serving Meatballs After Some Found to Contain Horse Meat

Swedish meatball purveyor Ikea confirmed this morning that it was the latest in an ever-increasing…

Now, in a reverse of the "unexpected ingredient/bacteria discovery," the store is recalling 17,000 containers of moose lasagna from stores in Europe after traces of pork were found in a batch in Belgium.

Making the scandal somewhat worse, the recall of the pork-tainted moose-filled pasta wasn't announced until Swedish paper Svenska Dagbladet published an article about it on Saturday.

"We have more information now. That's why we choose to inform now," [IKEA spokeswoman Tina] Kardum said.

Moose meat is common in Sweden though it's not typically used in lasagna.

So there you have it. No word on why pork was such a problem — maybe it's a religious thing? We should all just be eating horse meat anyway.

You Should Eat Horse

This horse meat scandal is sweeping Western Europe and quivering even the stiffest of upper lips in …

Ikea's having trouble with their meat products again. Months after pulling the product from their stores, the company admitting this weekend that a batch of its moose lasagna contained trace amounts of pork. The company pulled 17,600 lasangas that were 1.4 percent pork — they're not supposed to contain any pork — and blamed the suppliers sloppy cleaning practices for the contamination. There's nothing dangerous about pork, but Ikea says it won't "tolerate any other ingredients than the ones stipulated in our recipes or specifications." In related news, Ikea sells moose lasagna.

Few people would blink at the story of Ikea's pork-infused moose lasagna if the company hadn't just been through a drawn out scandal involving horsemeat in its meatballs. As the BBC put it, "It is the latest in a series of meat contamination scandals across Europe." Ikea halted the sale of its famous meatballs after the discovery, and while the horse meat wasn't hazardous either, the whole situation was pretty gross. Over the span of two months, the scandal ended up affecting almost every country in the European Union.

So next time you go to Ikea in Europe or otherwise, be careful what you order. Actually maybe don't order anything. As one person put it on Twitter, "I'm starting to think we shouldn't buy meat from a furniture store."

Pork found in Ikea's moose lasagna

Ikea says it has withdrawn 17,000 portions of moose lasagna from its home furnishings stores in Europe after traces of pork were found in a batch tested in Belgium.

Ikea spokeswoman Tina Kardum said the product had only been on sale for a month when it was pulled off the shelves on March 22.

The company didn't announce the withdrawal publicly until Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet wrote about it Saturday.

Kardum said the company found out Friday that a follow-up test in Belgium confirmed the lasagna contained 1.6 per cent pork.

"We have more information now. That's why we choose to inform now," Kardum said.

Moose meat is common in Sweden though it's not typically used in lasagna.

Ikea has previously recalled meatballs and other meat products sold in its cafeterias and frozen foods sections after tests showed they contained traces of horsemeat.

The Swedish furniture giant is one of many European companies caught up in a scandal over mislabelled meat in frozen food products.

Ikea's withdrawn products came from a Swedish frozen foods maker, which in turn blamed the mislabelling on its meat suppliers.


So Not Kosher: Ikea Says Moose Lasagna Contained Pork Traces

Almost a month after Ikea's horsemeat-in-the-meatballs controversy, there's more bad news for anyone who might wish to dine at your local Swedish mega-furniture store: pork in the moose lasagna.

AP reported on Saturday that Ikea recalled 17,000 portions of moose lasagna from stores in Europe as of March 22, after traces of pork were found in a test batch in Belgium. A follow-up test said the lasagna was, in fact, 1.6 percent pork, and not the 100 percent delicious and tender moose meat that consumers were promised.

An Ikea spokeswoman said the lasagna had been on sale only a month before it was pulled, but the company didn't announce the withdrawal until a Swedish newspaper called them out, AP said.

This is Ikea's second food-related scandal of 2013. Previously on Ikea Food Scandals, horsemeat was found in Ikea's famous Swedish meatballs. The company recalled 1,675 pounds of meatballs in the Czech Republic after the find, and more were pulled in Slovakia, Hungary, France, Braitain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Greece, Cypus and Ireland.

Other companies have been finding the same pesky and mysterious horsemeat in other products. A week before Swedish Meatballgate, Nestlé (VX:NESN) pulled its beef pasta meals from supermarkets in Italy, Spain, and France after horse DNA was found in a sample.

In January, Ireland announced that horse and pig DNA had been found in hamburgers and ground beef products sold by global manufacturer Tesco.

According to various reports, a very fashionably dressed monkey was found wandering around an Ikea in Toronto. Apparently, the monkey, who was wearing a shearling coat and a diaper, was brought to the store by his owners and left in the car while they went inside. But, as you might have guessed from his coat, this wasn't your regular, run-of-the-mill monkey, content to stay in the car while his owners had all the shopping fun. As the Globe and Mail reports:
