Seems like horsemeat has found its way as far as the Nordic countries, which had been until then untouched by the scandal. Finland might pursue criminal proceedings, but the mislabelled meat will go to charity. Meanwhile, Sweden is investigating the disappearance of almost 10 000 horses each year; the animals are suspected of being illegally sold as beef all over Europe. Ikea has removed from its shelves meatballs made in Sweden & distributed all over Europe, as well as Sweden & Denmark. In Denmark, horsemeat was found in pizzas labelled meat. On the other hand, the scandal kindled an interest in horsemeat all over Norway & especially Oslo.
