Furniture giant Ikea is withdrawing wiener sausages in Britain, France, Spain, Ireland and Portugal after tests confirmed "a few indications of horsemeat".

The move comes two days after it withdrew Swedish meatballs from stores across Europe and a handful of countries in Asia and the Caribbean.

"Based on some hundred test results that we have received so far, there are a few indications of horse meat," an Ikea spokeswoman said.

"Together with the Swedish supplier in question we have decided to withdraw from sales also the wiener sausages ... from that supplier."
