The inspectors sampled the foodstuff at the premises of company VietCham s.r.o., Jaselská 437, Teplice 41503.

Consumption of a foodstuff concealing presence of allergens or content of an allergen in contradiction to voluntary statement “may contain…,” which is perceived as warning against possible trace contamination, may cause health complications for persons with an allergy or intolerance to relevant allergenic ingredient. CAFIA recommends to all consumers with the allergy or intolerance to peanuts who may have the lots in question at home that they do not eat them.

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