IKEA stops selling meatballs from Swedish supplier

The IKEA Group has stopped selling meatballs in some parts of Europe as an "extra-precautionary measure" after tests detected horsemeat in the product.

The sales stop concerns meatballs manufactured by one supplier in Sweden and applies to all European countries except for Norway, Russia and a limited number of products in Switzerland and Poland.
