Shitty merchandise. Shitty food.
When you combine these with their use of slave labor, it's fair to say IKEA isn't the cutesy retailer they seem to think they are and rank right up there with Walmart as scumbags.
If you eat frozen or processed food you have been eating horse for a long time.
Of all the links on the World Wide Web, why link to something called "MyWay.com"?
So yeah.. what's really big deal?
Is it less safer than a cat?

Ikea USA does not get its meat balls from Europe. All USA Ikea stores get their meat balls from domestic (USA) meat suppliers. I stopped by an Ikea store and read the label and was told by the dept manager that no European Ikea meat ball products are sold in the USA.
[quote]No, not if they're bred for human consumption. Otherwise they're full of drugs that can make humans ill.
The real surprise is that Taco Bell uses any meat at all.

The founder is a Nazi tax-evader, so no surprise.
As a new gay I just re-read the introductory flyer I was given. Aren't we big lovers of horsemeat and meaty balls? I'm leaving for Ikea now.
You are absolutely correct, New Gay. Don't be side tracked by all the PTMs on DL. They love to talk about absurdities instead of remaining focused on horse sized meat and balls. If they ever took a good sized horse meat, they's remain on their backs and die. Besides, considering the things that pass through many gay guys mouth, a little horse meat is nothing; it's like taking a shower wearing shower shoes after rimming all night.
PTM, princess tiny meat, a 60's colloquial used to denote the under endowed.

[quote]For those who buy 16 packs of Ikea meatballs, you get an allen wrench so you can assemble them into a horse.
They discovered a problem with this. Many are discovering that, after the Ikea horse has been assembled, there is one meatball left over.
You can always be sure of what is really hidden in Ikea meatballs when the label says: Grade A Triple Crown Beef.
As someone said before, it's not a problem that it's a horse instead of a cow (not from a health point anyway). It's that this are 'not for consumption' horses - it's not like somebody took a healthy horse and killed it instead of a cow (that meat would be MORE expensive since horses are more expensive than cows, especially calculated per pound).
Nobody would mix normal horse meat into other meat, because it costs more. What you mix in is a meat that costs you less.
The thing here is horse meat of unknown origins, basically horses that died of diseases, ex-race horses etc, full of medicine and other drugs. They already found some dangerous compounds in it. So it's a health risk (not because of the species of the animal, but because of the type of horses that ended in the burgers.
Btw: pert of the horse meat is supposed to be from US ex-track horses, so I wouldn't be so sure it's limited to Europe only - they just have stricter inspections and have found it sooner.
I thought the thread title was "Horsemeat at Ikea," and was understandably excited.
If you buy 17 plates of meat balls, with an Alan wrench, you can re-assemble the horse.
And you will still have one spare meat ball you don't know where to put.
We get it, R32. Meatballs, wrench, reassemble, etc. R15 and R28 got there first and now you're just flogging that dead horse.

Heh! R32 is just sowing some wild oats.
