MOSCOW, August 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Rospotrebnadzor consumer rights watchdog is checking American bourbon whiskey, in particular Kentucky Gentleman produced by Barton 1792 Distillery, on quality concerns, its press service reports on Monday.

It said Kentucky Gentleman bourbon had not gone through state registration as to its compliance with regulations of the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, although its label bears the EAC mark for products turnover in the market of the Customs Union member-states.

Rospotrebnadzor also said phthalates had been found in that bourbon whiskey “which may cause functional and later organic changes in the central and peripheral nervous system, endocrine system, as well as oncologic diseases and male and female infertility”.
