The discovery was made by local health and safety inspectors at an unannounced visit to the company Meatsson AB this month. The inspectors found irregularities in the company's records over where the meat has been bought and sold, and noted that the facilities were not properly cleaned.
The company must now claim back all the meat that it has sold between the 8th of July and the 7th of August. It must also send in a list of all the shops and restaurants that have bought meat from them.
There is no indication, however, that the meat is dangerous to eat.
