Horse Meat Found in Some Frozen IKEA Meatballs

U.S. stores are said to be unaffected.


Traces of horse meat have been found in some of the frozen meatballs distributed by furniture giant IKEA, USA Today reports.

An IKEA spokesperson told the paper that the meatballs were distributed to several countries in Europe and were taken off the shelves. Shipments of the meatballs to the United States were not affected.

"Our global recommendation is to not recall or stop selling meatballs," said IKEA spokeswoman Ylva Magnusson.

IKEA has Maryland locations in College Park and Baltimore.
