CAFIA detected misleading concerning meat content in canned pork


Inspectors of the Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) pay an intensive attention to inspectiions not only of safety but also quality of foodstuffs in the market network, and they currently banned a lot of imported canned meat with 10% lower meat content than stated on the labelling.

CAFIA ordered company Lidl Česká republika v.o.s to immediately withdraw the non-compliant foodstuff PIKOK Cottage Pork with best before day by: 17.12.2023, lot designation: L 14954, manufacturer: PAMAPOL S.A., ul. Wielunska 2, 97-438 Rusiec, Poland, country of origin: Poland. The product has to withdrawn from the entire market network of Lidl company.

The producer stated in the composition of the foodstuff, inter alia, “89 % pork”. However, the analysis performed in the CAFIA accredited laboratory confirmed presence of pork meat amounting to 79.5 % only; the information on the labelling was therefore misleading the consumers as regards the actual proportion of the content of pork meat.

SZPI will initiate an administrative procedure on imposition of a fine with the inspected person.
