#1 Ikea's Moose Meat Lasagna Contains More Than Just Moose Meat04-08-2013, 12:44 PM

Ikea's having trouble with their meat products again. Months after pulling the product from their stores, the company admitting this weekend that a batch of its moose lasagna contained trace amounts of pork. The company pulled 17,600 lasangas that were 1.4 percent pork — they're not supposed to contain any pork — and blamed the suppliers sloppy cleaning practices for the contamination. There's nothing dangerous about pork, but Ikea says it won't "tolerate any other ingredients than the ones stipulated in our recipes or specifications." In related news, Ikea sells moose lasagna.
Few people would blink at the story of Ikea's pork-infused moose lasagna if the company hadn't just been through a drawn out scandal involving horsemeat in its meatballs. As the BBC put it, "It is the latest in a series of meat contamination scandals across Europe." Ikea halted the sale of its famous meatballs after the discovery, and while the horse meat wasn't hazardous either, the whole situation was pretty gross. Over the span of two months, the scandal ended up affecting almost every country in the European Union.
So next time you go to Ikea in Europe or otherwise, be careful what you order. Actually maybe don't order anything. As one person put it on Twitter, "I'm starting to think we shouldn't buy meat from a furniture store."
I wonder if they still sell chocolate moose?

Note to self: Can't imagine why buying food from a furniture company probably doesn't make sense. I wonder if Hellman's makes power tools.

Using pork is good noose for the moose!The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

A Møøse once bit my sister...
No realli! She was Karving her initials øn the møøse with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law -an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst Nordfink"...
Mynd you, møøse bites Kan be pretty nasti...Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

People actually want to eat lasagna made with of moose meat? And they get worked up over a little pork in it?
I've eaten venison, it's yummy. If someone made me something with rabbit meat, I'd probably eat it. I don't know about moose, though. I guess they are kind of like huge, hairy cows. I think they are protected animals here, but I'm not sure. The only ones in the wild in Michigan are pretty much in the UP.
