IKEA’s Famous Swedish Meatballs Will Now Be Vegan

After much controversy surrounding traces of horse meat that had been found in a batch of their famous Swedish meatballs, IKEA has announced that they’ve changed their renowned recipe, and it happens to be vegan-friendly. What had caused the furniture giant to alter their signature dish and add a “veggie ball” to the menu?

The decision to make the switch over to plant-based could be due to the many online petitions requesting for the meatballs to be made in a manner that is suitable for vegetarians. IKEA states that the new recipe contains no animal products whatsoever and that the meatballs are now even appropriate for those who consume a vegan diet.

An IKEA spokesperson, who is calling the new product “exciting,” says that the “veggie ball which will be launched in our stores from April and onwards… does not have any animal content and is therefore also suitable for vegans.”

I'm sorry, it's raining here and there's a bad connection. Did you say, "There is a kind and loving God in Heaven."?

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Wow! That's amazing. They won't serve meat meatballs at all anymore, either? Am I reading that right?
