Ikea pulls moose lasagne tainted with pork

Swedish furniture brand, Ikea, has stopped sales of its moose lasagne after Belgian authorities detected that one of the batches contained traces of pork (slightly over the limit of one percent), according to newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.

Ikea has pulled the tainted lasagne, over 17,000 packages made by the Swedish supplier Dafgård, from all of its warehouses in Europe.

The Belgian authorities told Ikea about the results of the test at the end of March, and Ikea withdrew the products that day, however, they waited until the Belgian authorities did a second test, which confirmed the results of the first, before announcing that they had removed the product and the reason why.

The company also ordered some 25 tests to be done throughout Europe, but they tested negative for pork.
