Moldova will check Roshen products at European laboratory

Moldovan national food security agency sent the products of the Ukrainian company Roshen to the European laboratory for analysis.

Head of the agency Georgy Gabel has said about this on Tuesday.

“Those laboratory tests of Roshen products will be held on the consumers' requests,” the official noted.

In the meantime, the Moldovan Agriculture and Food Industry Ministry maintains that these products pose no danger.

“There is no problem as such. Mainly, it was fomented by mass media. Tests of sweets by the Ukrainian Roshen were made, although there was not a special need in this. The expert examination showed, and the consumers should know this, that there are no problems with batches of products supplied to the territory of Moldova. There is nothing, which fails to meet relevant standards or is dangerous for the citizen's life in the sold sweets,” Moldovan Minister Vasily Bumakov told a press conference about this.

According to him, “this rumor was spread due to extreme concentration of media on this issue and this created panic among the country residents, but currently, there are no problems with Ukrainian sweets.”

Earlier, the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) introduced a ban for supply of Roshen products to Russia due to detected quality and security violations.
