MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will not import fish covered with ice, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov said on Friday, when speaking at a meeting at the United Russia congress site.
Onishchenko (chief of the federal consumer rights protection and public health control service Rospotrebnadzor) is instructed to stop the import of fish covered with so-called icing that accounts for 30 percent of the weight, Zubkov said, explaining that after such fish is fried, only water is left in the pan.
The vice-premier said he had given instructions to limit the icing to five-six percent. It is a technical requirement, he noted.
"Onishchenko has understood and will take action as with chicken legs, when a million tonnes of chicken legs with chlorine were brought in, and our people were ill. That was stopped," Zubkov stressed.
