IKEA takes the test result from the Czech Republic authorities showing indications of traces of horse meat seriously.
The concerned production batch of meatballs has been withdrawn from the Swedish Food Market in the IKEA stores.
Already two weeks ago, IKEA Group initiated DNA analyses of all meat products in the range.
12 tested samples of different batches of meatballs showed no traces of horsemeat.
To validate the test results, we are now initiating further tests on the same production batch in which the Czech Republic authorities found indications of horsemeat.
We are expecting test results in the coming days and will then be able to give more information.
