IKEA meatballs given the all clear in Spain

SWEDISH furniture chain IKEA is once again selling meatballs in restaurants in its Spanish stores.

At the end of February, the store withdrew meatballs from its menu after finding traces of horsemeat

Now store bosses confirm that those which are now on sale only contain pork and beef. They have also cut down the number of suppliers along the production chain to ensure closer monitoring.

Two DNA tests are carried out in the manufacturing of the meatballs to guarantee that no horsemeat finds its way into the mix.

One test is carried out on the raw ingredients and another on the finished product.

IKEA assures that clients can now eat their meatballs with ‘total confidence’ in all their restaurants.
