CAFIA found imported pork sausages with misleading information on their content


The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) detected non-compliant foodstuff Morliny PORK SAUSAGES packaged à 200 g with best before date by 22nd October 2020 produced by company Animex Foods sp. z o.o., ul. T. Chałubińskiego 8, 00-613 Warszawa, Oddział w Morlinach, Morliny 15, 14-100 Ostróda, Poland. The foodstuff was found in the retail network.

The producer stated, inter alia, on the labelling: “May contain soya.” The maximum tolerable level of soay for the statement “may contain soya” – thus trace amount of soya – is 25 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg). However, the laboratory analysis performed in the CAFIA laboratory proved presence of soya protein amounting to 939 mg/kg. The detected amount of soya in the foodstuff cannot be regarded as unintentional cross contamination.

Consumers were thus provided with misleading information as regards the composition of the foodstuff and offering it, the seller violated the European Regulation (EC) No. 1169/2011 on provision of information to consumers.

CAFIA recommends all consumers who may have the food lot in question at home in frozen state that they do not eat it if they suffer from the intolerance to soya.

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

CAFIA will forward this information into the European system for fraud against adulterate foodstuffs AACS which enables further investigation of the case in the country of origin of the foodstuff concerned.
