Retail chains caught selling faulty poultry again

Shelves in shops belonging to foreign retail chains continue to contain poultry that was ordered to be withdrawn, with Tesco in Nové Zámky (Nitra region) and Kaufland in Bratislava and Nitra being the culprits, said the head of the Union of Poultry Breeders (ÚHS), Daniel Molnár, on August 30 as reported by the TASR newswire. "This was confirmed by test results of the State Veterinary and Food Authority (SVPS) done in July and August," stated Molnár.

"This was confirmed by test results of the State Veterinary and Food Authority (SVPS) done in July and August," stated Molnár.

A decision to order those products off the shelves was made due to their faulty marking, a variety of defects or deviations from the standard sensory perceptions of the poultry.

Molnar added that this attests to low-quality products still being imported to Slovakia, saying that foreign producers need to get rid of products that they cannot sell on their domestic markets. He said this ought to be addressed by an amendment to the Food Act whereby an obligation to announce imports at least 24 hours before the actual imports are readied for consumers to purchase.
