The horse meat scandal is widening in Europe, with reports now surfacing that Ikea's meatballs have been found to contain horse
. Ikea insists the meatballs sold in the U.S. are horse-less, even though the U.S. and European meatballs come from the same supplier.
Of course, the U.S. has its own history of meat scandals, such as back in 1960 when Pennsylvanians got "hopping mad" to discover kangaroo meat was being mixed into their sausages and bologna.
In the past, I've purposefully had horse sausage and kangaroo filet. Or, at least, that's what I was told I was being served. Who knows. Maybe they were both really pork. I would never have been able to tell the difference.
