NO SPIRITS made by the Czech company Drak Distillery after January 1, 2012 can be sold in Slovak shops, according to the State Veterinary and Food Administration (ŠVPS), the SITA newswire reported.

The ŠVPS reported that the alcohol in question was not marked with a date of production. Its regional offices are now checking that all Drak Distillery alcohol stored at central warehouses and with Slovak distributors is withdrawn.

The ban follows an earlier blanket ban on all Czech spirits after a spate of poisonings in the Czech Republic caused by people drinking methanol-laced alcohol. That ban was lifted earlier in October after a new system of controls was introduced.
