Horse meat in hotdogs...   (©)

(Newser) – The last 10 days haven't been kind to Ikea's PR team, what with the horse meatballs and fecal bacteria-tinged chocolate cake. Today brings no relief: The furniture giant announced that it identified horse meat in hot dogs being sold in Russia and has pulled the offending products. The discovery came as a result of expansive testing Ikea has been doing of meat products around the world, CNN reports. "The vast majority of these tests show no indication of horse meat. However, there are also a few tests that do. In those cases we remove the product from sales," the company said in a statement. Only Russian hot dogs contained the rogue meat.

Those are the same hot dogs that are sold in US stores. But whoever didn't know that they weren't beef is dumb as hell.

It's in Russia: Who cares? Plus, it has to be an improvement for hot dogs, and the Russian diet!
