Ten months after a new law on allergy labelling went into force, a third of Czech restaurants and delis are still failing to fully comply with it. The Food Inspection Office says that 37 percent of restaurants and eating places recently inspected either failed to provide the respective information on their menus or only gave it on request.
Czech carmaker Škoda Auto, which belongs to Volkswagen AG, says 1.2 million of its vehicles were equipped with the TDI engine that manipulated emissions data in the years between 2009 and 2013. Škoda Auto spokesman Jozef Baláž told Czech Television on Monday that Volkswagen would repair all affected models and fully cover the cost. He stressed that all the vehicles were perfectly safe and functional.
