A batch of meatballs has been taken off the menu at Ikea, after they were found to contain traces of horsemeat.

The Czech Republic's state veterinary administration - which made the discovery - said the 1kg packs of frozen meatballs were labelled as beef and pork.

Ikea said it had taken the result "seriously", and was removing meatballs from sale at its stores, including the chain's flagship store in Valley Park, Croydon.

An Ikea spokesman said: "Ikea takes the test result from the Czech Republic authorities showing indications of traces of horsemeat seriously.

"The concerned production batch of meatballs has been withdrawn from the Swedish Food Market in the Ikea stores.

"Already two weeks ago, Ikea Group initiated DNA analyses of all meat products in the range -12 tested samples of different batches of meatballs showed no traces of horsemeat."
