Question for written answer E-000638-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Patrick Le Hyaric (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Traceability and preventing fraud in the European food industry
 Answer in writing 

On 15 January 2019, the Polish veterinary services raised the alarm that a 2.7 tonne batch of tainted meat from the Kalinowo abattoir had been distributed to 11 European countries.

Will the Commission look into the source of the meat and give the names of the manufacturers involved?

Will it mobilise more funding for traceability checks and set tougher penalties for those involved in fraud?

Will it launch a debate into the possibility of creating a European agency whose job it would be to prevent fraud in the food industry?
