“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 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.
