EU return audit to Poland finds unresolved issues; Salmonella in poultry still a problem

Food Safety News

Major problems remain in the Polish control system for beef and poultry meat, according to the European Commission’s health and safety agency.

A remote DG Sante audit, in October 2021 in Poland, followed-up two audits in 2019 on beef and poultry meat and made nine recommendations.

In 2019, a Polish television broadcast showed practices in a bovine slaughterhouse that pointed to violations of EU animal welfare law and, possibly, of food safety legislation.

DG Sante said several actions to address findings made after the beef and poultry audits have been implemented. However, other shortcomings have not been solved by Polish authorities.
