Flatpack instructions mean you would never eat horse

Have your say

So the horsemeat scandal is still rumbling on. I have to admit that it’s all getting a bit tedious now.

It would be a lot easier if companies just added ‘may contain horse’ on the packaging.

The latest firm to admit having horsemeat in its products is IKEA.

I’d be surprised though if many have actually eaten any of the products that are supposed to contain horse.

Why? Because if they are anything like the instructions for their flatpacks, by the time you’d spent an hour opening up the packaging and a further three hours trying to decipher the instructions the last thing you’d want to do is eat.

Next they will be releasing a statement admitting their furniture may contain traces of wood.
