Tension in trade relations of Kazakhstan and Russia is growing
The departments of Russia and Kazakhstan, which monitor the quality of food, on Friday imposed a ban on the supply of a variety of food items to each other.
Thus, the Committee for the Protection of Consumer Rights of Kazakhstan has revealed cases of consumer fraud and violations of the technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union in Russian mayonnaise, butter and confectionery products sold in the country.
Products are withdrawn from sale and entered in the register of non-conforming goods. Among the food products prohibited for export are sweets produced at the “Lipetsk confectionery factory Roshen”, owned by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, as well as confectionery products produced at enterprises in the Moscow, Kemerovo, Vologda and Belgorod regions.
Consumer fraud was also revealed in a batch of Mayonnaise "Olive Maheev", which contains 12% less fat than indicated on the package. The overestimated content of acidity was revealed during the sale of Saratovsky mayonnaise.
Similar claims were made against Krestyanskoye oil from Novosibirsk and a number of other products.
Around the same time, a message appeared on the official website of the Russian sanitary and supervisory authority - Rospotrebnadzor - that a number of products imported from Kazakhstan were withdrawn from sale.
“So, in the Kurgan region, dairy products with labeling that do not meet the established requirements were identified. Carbonated fermented milk products “TAN Rudnensky” and “Ayran Rudnensky” produced by LLP “Leader2010” (Republic of Kazakhstan) did not contain information about an organization in the Russian Federation authorized to accept claims from consumers.
In the Chelyabinsk region, in the study of pasteurized milk "Depovskoe" produced by "DEP" LLP (Republic of Kazakhstan), a discrepancy was found in the fatty acid composition and the content of dry non-fat milk residue.
In skimmed kefir produced by Ice Plus LLP (Republic of Kazakhstan), the content of bacteria of the Escherichia coli group was found, exceeding the hygienic requirements, ”the official statement of Rospotrebnadzor says.
The agency also found an excess of the standards for the content of nitrates in Kazakh melons and beets grown at the Dikhan-Sauda farm.
In addition, Rospotrebnadzor revealed the fact of fraud, when dried fruits and walnuts made in the USA were sold under the guise of Kazakhstani products.
