WIENER SAUSAGES ARE back for sale in IKEA stores in the UK and Ireland.

The sausages were affected by a precautionary sales stop due to DNA tests for horsemeat. According to IKEA, none of the numerous DNA analysis made on the wiener sausages shows any indications of horse meat.

Wiener sausages will be available in stores from tomorrow morning, both in the bistro area and the Swedish Food Market, said the Swedish furniture giant.

Anders Lennartsson, IKEA Food Services AB said:

IKEA Group is committed to serving and selling high quality food that is safe, healthy and produced with care for the environment. “The trust of our customers is of outmost importance for us.
We do not tolerate any other ingredients than the ones stipulated in our recipes or product specifications.
Our supplier (Dafgård) does not produce meatballs and sausages on the same production line and the sub-suppliers of the meat raw materials are not the same. The meat raw material in the wiener sausages has never been supplied by the suspected sub-supplier.

Meatballs were also taken off sale, and this sale stop is still valid. Lennartsson said that the company is closely following its supplier’s actions to find the root cause of presence of horse meat in meatballs.
