The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) had to close 55 sites in only three months. CAFIA extended authorization to inspect bars, wine shops, and fast food restaurants and has already inspected more than 3000 facilities. CAFIA found unacceptable hygiene conditions in the sites that were closed. Among the most frequent defects, there was neglected cleaning of kitchen, storage area, food, moulds and occurrence of rodents or their excrements.

The State Veterinary Administration that controls handling of the products of animal origin in restaurants from January 2015 carried out inspections too. Till the beginning of April, the inspectors have found 277 cases of violation of regulations in restaurants and canteens. Besides closing the sites, high penalty that can reach up to two million Czech Koruna can be imposed on the owners.
