Waiter, there’s a moose in my soup

If your plans this weekend include the middle-class nightmare of a trek round IKEA, you can at least seek solace in the IKEA cafeteria with a portion of moose lasagne. Except that the moose lasagne is off:
Sales of the lasagne, of which about 10,000 tonnes has been produced by a Swedish supplier for IKEA, were stopped at its stores in 18 countries across Europe after tests by Belgian authorities late last month revealed traces of pork.
To confuse matters, the BBC says that IKEA has withdrawn elk lasagne. But that’s OK, because elk is the same thing as moose.

Still, it could have been worse. They could have found traces of horsemeat. But if that were the case, the Belgian authorities would not have considered it a problem.
