Horsemeat found in Ikea retail foods

BBC News – Horsemeat found in Ikea meatballs in Czech Republic.

Ikea has withdrawn meatballs from sale in 14 European countries after tests in the Czech Republic found traces of horsemeat in a batch made in Sweden.

This statement really sent me thinking:

Europe’s food retailers depend on a complex network of brokers, cold stores and meat-cutting plants around the continent from which to source the ingredients wherever they are cheapest, says the BBC’s Christian Fraser, in Paris.

Horse meat is considered a delicacy in some countries but this is against all rules of labeling, industry control and so much more.

At least a dozen countries are involved in the horsemeat affair, which implicates some of the biggest meat processors and food producers.
