More than 800 kilograms of high-risk products from Turkey have been withdrawn from commerce by Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing officers, a representative of the Rospotrebnadzor press service told Interfax on Nov. 26.
"Due to the uncovered non-compliance of certain types of food products from the Turkish republic with quality and security requirements throughout the year 2015, Rospotrebnadzor is exercising enhanced control over products from Turkey belonging to the high-risk group: meat products, water bio-resources, confectionary products, fruit, vegetables, nuts and their derivatives," he said.
"More than 800 kilograms of the aforesaid products have been withdrawn from commerce following tests. Rospotrebnadzor continues to control the situation," he said.
"The non-compliance with norms was also uncovered during the year amongst such categories of commodities as light industry products, including children's wear, cleaners and detergents. In every case measures are being taken consistent with Russian laws; the products belong to the high-risk group," the Rospotrebnadzor representative added.
