IKEA to start selling meatballs again

The furniture chain IKEA is to start serving meatballs in its stores again today, according to news agency TT.

Sales of the traditional Swedish meal were halted after traces of horse meat were found in the meatballs, without it appearing on the labels.

Edward Mohr, CEO of IKEA Foods, told TT that from now on, all meat sold in IKEA restaurants will be DNA-tested three times before it reaches the plate. They have also cut down on the number of suppliers, from 13 to seven, to improve accountability.
