Rospotrebnadzor checking Ukraine's pastry
The Russian Federal Consumer Rights Service (Rospotrebnadzor) is currently checking flour confectionary products from Ukraine, the agency's chairman and Russia's chief sanitary doctor Gennadiy Onishchenko briefed the press Wednesday in Moscow, according to the Russian media.
"Now we have undertaken to check flour confectionery products from Ukraine. I can't say yet what will be the result," he said.
Earlier, Russia had imposed a ban on imports of Roshen confectionery products on the basis of examination results. Rospotrebnadzor explained that the Ukrainian Roshen sweets violated the norm of fat and organoleptic properties. Also, benzopyrene was found in milk chocolate - a first-class hazard substance. The "black list" includes four Roshen factories in Vinnytsia, Mariupol, Kyiv and Kremenchuk.
