    Pork in your Moose lasagna

    As a public service announcement to those of you not currently subscribed to a food manufacturing trade pub...



    STOCKHOLM (AP) Ikea says it has withdrawn 17,000 portions of moose lasagna from its home furnishings stores in Europe after traces of pork were found in a batch tested in Belgium.

    Ikea spokeswoman Tina Kardum said the product had only been on sale for a month when it was pulled off the shelves on March 22.

    The company didn't announce the withdrawal publicly until Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet wrote about it Saturday.

    Kardum said the company found out Friday that a follow-up test in Belgium confirmed the lasagna contained 1.6 percent pork.

    "We have more information now. That's why we choose to inform now," Kardum said.

    Moose meat is common in Sweden though it's not typically used in lasagna.

    Ikea has previously recalled meatballs and other meat products sold in its cafeterias and frozen foods sections after tests showed they contained traces of horsemeat.

    The Swedish furniture giant is one of many European companies caught up in a scandal over mislabeled meat in frozen food products.

    Ikea's withdrawn products came from a Swedish frozen foods maker, which in turn blamed the mislabeling on its meat suppliers.

    The first thing I thought of when I read this story: are moose farmed for meat in Scandanavia? Are there moose ranches? I would not think you could sustain a commercial product line using just hunted wild moose.

    When I saw that news item, I thought "I think I'd rather have pork than moose in my lasagna!"

    Probably makes it better... we also mix a little pork into Moose sausages because it is so incredibly lean.

    They can send all of this recalled lasgana to me if they want to.

    They supplement the moose with flying squirrel.

    We have Moose and Deer ranches (Ostriches too) in Canada. Have had for 30+ years. Most meats are exported so ya never know. I am with Sixty Five, send the lasagna!

    You could also get killed by the porkin' thing. Moose are notoriously ill tempered...and very tall!

    That's what I was thinking. You wouldn't survive long enough to be arrested...

    Around here, people would probably be more upset at their pork being tainted with moose meat.
