Ikea removes moose lasagne from shelves

Ikea removes moose lasagne from shelves

Furniture department store Ikea has removed its moose lasagne from the shelves of their Swedish Food Markets, after Belgian food authorities found pork in a moose lasagna.

Probably contamination, not fraud

In a lot of lasagne prepared by Swedish company Dafgard, a concentration of 1.4% pork was found. It is supposedly a case of contamination, not of conscious fraud. As a precaution all moose lasagnes in eighteen European countries were taken of the shelves, involving over 17,000 portions.

 

There was no risk to public safety, because the pork met the required standards, but it is illegal to have ingredients in a product that are not listed on the packaging. Furthermore the eating of pork is not allowed for Jews and Muslims.

 

It is not the first time Ikea had to take products of the menu this year: earlier it also happened when the meatballs and the almond cake was taken of the shelves. The famous ‘köttbullar’ contained horse meat, while the pastry showed traces of intestinal bacteria.
