Czechs to test German beef, pork imports for E.coli

PRAGUE - The Czech Republic has started testing beef and pork imports from Germany following an E.coli outbreak that so far has killed at least 22 people in Europe, a state veterinary administration official said on Tuesday.
The Czech veterinary administration plans to test around 30 samples of beef and pork imports, said Jan Vana, a director in the office's public health department.
"We have just launched a special action on sampling of beef and pork meat," Vana said. "We will have the results at the end of this week."
