Budapest, July 10 (MTI) – Hungary’s system for ensuring the safety of food has passed the scrutiny of the United States’ Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the farm ministry said on Friday.
The FSIS visited the agriculture ministry, food safety authority NEBIH, laboratories and a number of companies licensed for export during an audit focusing on pork meat and pork product producers in Hungary between June 17 and July 3.
The FSIS looked into whether the Hungarian food safety inspection was in line with US standards and whether Hungarian products destined for US markets meet food safety and labelling requirements, the ministry said.
The inspection identified only minor irregularities that posed no food safety risks and these were corrected already during the audit, it said in a statement.
Hungary’s food safety system was last cleared by the FSIS in an audit two years earlier.
