“Since we have asked the court to postpone the execution of the decision we will not comment this issue for now,” Kaufland spokesperson Júlia Piterková told the Sme daily.

Inspectors of the Slovak State Veterinary and Food Administration (ŠVPS) found shortcomings, particularly in relation to the sale of meat and vegetables. They also objected to the fact that texts on food packages were difficult to read.

Inspectors found several kinds of frozen fish and poultry with damaged packaging. They also found three pizzas which did not have easily readable expiration dates, according to Sme.

Inspectors also found a meat product, called Fuet Extra, stored in a place with a temperature of 14 degrees Celsius on the morning of the inspection.
