PRAGUE (AP) — The Czech veterinary authority says it has detected horse meat in meat balls labeled as beef and pork imported to the country by Sweden's furniture retailer giant Ikea.

The State Veterinary Administration says the one-kilogram packs of the frozen meat balls were made in Sweden to be sold in Ikea's furniture stores that also offer typical Swedish food.

A total of 760 kilograms (1,675 pounds) of the meat balls were stopped from reaching the shelves in the Czech Republic.

The authority said Monday horse meat was also found in beef burgers imported from Poland.

Last week, the Czechs detected horse meat for the first time — in lasagna Bolognese made by frozen food processor Tavola S. A. Comigel and sold at Tesco.
