“Traces of horse meat” have been found in some of the frozen meatballs distributed by furniture giant IKEA, according to recent news reports.
An IKEA spokesperson told USA Today that those meatballs were distributed to several countries in Europe and were taken off the shelves. Shipments of the meatballs to the United States were not affected, she told the paper.
"Our global recommendation is to not recall or stop selling meatballs," said IKEA spokeswoman Ylva Magnusson, according to USA Today.
IKEA has Maryland locations near Baltimore and College Park, according to its website.
