Lidl: “Real Czech pig-slaughtering” from Germany02/22/2012
During an inspection of Lidl the Czech Republic v.o.s. at establishment in Ostrov nad Ohří, the Food Inspection Authority found out that some selected products on sale are labelled with a notice which is pointing consumers out the action “REAL CZECH PIG-SLAUGHTERING”. Inspectors found under this labelling also products originating from a German producer.
Three types of brawn and dark brawn were concerned.
By CAFIA´s account, consumers are misled by this label about the food origin because he could think that he buys a product of Czech origin.
The Food Inspection Authority imposed a measure on the producer according to which he has to check and truly label the products which are put into circulation with the label “REAL CZECH PIG-SLAUGHTERING”.
