U.S. IKEA Stores Put Stickers on Meatballs, Letting Consumers Know There's No Horse Meat!
So as we sat down to our usual so-cheap-it-might-as-well-be-free-breakfast at the IKEA in Costa Mesa, my better half notices a sticker on the poster board with a picture of their meatball plate on it.
As shown above, it said, quite plainly, "Our meatballs are from a US supplier -- sourced from US and Canada only. Only beef and pork meat products used. 100% USDA approved."
It was, of course, a response to the recent revelation that IKEA stores in Europe, as with Burger King and Taco Bell, have discovered there were trace amounts of horse meat in their beef products.
