A horsemeat scandal in Europe has reached Swedish furniture giant IKEA. Czech officials say they have found horsemeat in the chain's famous frozen meatballs. The Czech state veterinary administration said horsemeat was found in packs of frozen meatballs made in Sweden and shipped to the Czech Republic for sale in IKEA stores. The meatballs were reportedly sold in thirteen other countries in Europe. IKEA says they pulled the tainted meatballs from the shelves and no other shipments were affected.
