Import ban

On 6 March 2012, the Czech authorities issued a temporary import ban for edible salt from Poland. The ban was issued following at least three cases in Poland where road salt was used instead of edible salt.
 
The Czech Minister of Agriculture, Petr Bendl, argued on a press conference the Ministry had not received sufficient information from their Polish counterparts concerning the companies involved and was therefore forced to introduce the temporary ban.
