Horsemeat crisis continues

Ikea, the largest furniture retailer in Europe, has recalled the meat balls on sale at its stores in 13 countries after Czech inspectors detected traces of horsemeat in the product, reports Dow Jones Newswires. It is the latest company to become involved in the scandal that has rocked Europe in recent weeks.

An Ikea spokesperson, Ylva Magnusson, says the meatballs were withdrawn from stores in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, France, UK, Portugal, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and Ireland.
