Stunned to find Ikea have horse meat in their meatballs. Assumed they were made from couples who had become irretrievably lost in the store.

Horse in Ikea meatballs? They will be finding wood in the furniture next

Depending on which part of the horse they used, IKEA may not have deceived anyone about their meatballs.

I'm confused about people's shock at finding @Ikea meatballs had horse meat. Isn't that an upgrade from what you thought they contained?

Will IKEA shoppers be pleased to hear what was discovered in some of their famous Swedish meatballs? Nay. http://t.co/6sHRV1AqOD

Just found even my beloved Ikea Swedish meatballs were made out of horse meat! Maybe Ive never actually eaten beef, what does it taste like?

Horsemeat discovered in IKEA meatballs. If you buy enough of them, you can self-assemble a horse

You can lead a horse to slaughter but you can't make people think it's beef. #ikea
