Czech Agriculture Minister Marian Jurečka has told his Polish counterpart Marek Sawicki that he was not aware of the existence of a memo that ordered strict inspection of Polish food products. He stated that there was no difference in the way Polish and other imported products were treated.
He declared that he would send Sawicki data on the inspection of all food products imported from the European Union.
Jurečka asked Sawicki for a meeting to discuss the issue.
On Monday, Polish Radio reported that the Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority had issued a memo ordering stricter than regular inspections of food imported from Poland, especially apples, meat, milk, cheese and fish.
