Ikea sausages are pulled from sale

Furniture giant Ikea is withdrawing wiener sausages in the UK after tests found "indications" of horse meat, just days after it withdrew a batch of its meatballs.

The Swedish company said it was removing the sausages from sale in Britain, France, Spain, Ireland and Portugal after tests confirmed "a few indications of horse meat".

The move comes two days after it withdrew Swedish meatballs from stores across Europe after horse meat was discovered by Czech authorities.
