Sweden threatens 'all out war' if EU attacks 'snus'

Country got exception for domestic version of snuff in 1994

(The Local) Sweden’s Trade Minister Ewa Björling said the EU faces “all out war” with Sweden if a new health directive on tobacco being hammered out at the European Commission threatens Swedish moist snuff “snus”.

“This has been a low intensity conflict for years,” Björling told the TT news agency after leaving a one-hour meeting with Tonio Borg, the European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy.

“Depending on what the directive actually says… we’re facing all out war.”
