Sales of the lasagne, of which about 10,000 tonnes has been produced by a Swedish supplier for IKEA, were stopped at its stores in 18 countries across Europe. It comes after tests by Belgian authorities last month revealed traces of pork.

In a statement IKEA said: "We received confirmation on Friday that one production series contained minced pork in very small quantity, roughly 1 percent."
