The results of the second round of tests for dioxin in pork imported from Germany were negative, as were the first tests carried out at the beginning of January, the Agriculture and Rural Development Ministry informed the TASR newswire on Friday, January 21. "The analyses have shown that all samples were negative for presence of dioxin but more stringent inspections of imported meat and meat products from Germany are still being applied," said Juraj Kadaš from the ministry's press department.
