(Newser) – Maybe Ikea should just stick with furniture: First, its beef contained too much horse meat, and now its elk meat has too much pork. Ikea has pulled 17,000 packages of elk lasagna—you read that correctly—from stores across Europe because they contained about 1.6% pork, reports the Local of Sweden. The product had been on shelves for about a month before getting yanked in late March, but the chain didn't publicize the move until a Swedish paper wrote about it today, reports AP.
