Czech farm minister defends domestic rum

Popular Czech liquor known as ‘tuzemák’ has once again come under the spotlight from authorities in Brussels. According to a report by the European Food Safety Authority, the chemical used to create the artificial rum flavour can be carcinogenic. Agriculture Minister Marian Jurečka says that if Brussels decided to ban the chemical, he is ready to file for exemption so that its use can be continued.
