Agriculture minister denies targeting Polish food

The Czech minister of agriculture, Marián Jurečka, has rejected a claim by his Polish counterpart, that the Czech food inspection authority targeted food imports from Poland. In a letter to Polish Agriculture Minister Marek Sawicki, Mr Jurečka argued that food from other countries had been subject to inspections more frequently that food from Poland; however, a chart provided to the media shows that after food produced in the Czech Republic, Polish foodstuffs were most frequently inspected, followed by food imported from Germany and Spain.
