“We have started to monitor products of some Belarusian enterprises. If we have doubts about their safety, we will certainly take measures,” said Alexei Alekseenko, an aide to the agency's head.
Russian specialists had more than once noted microbiological contamination of dairy and fish products from Belarus, Alekseenko said, adding that risks of poor quality products reaching the Russian market had grown together with increased supplies in August to September.
Rosselkhoznadzor head Sergey Dankvert told ITAR-TASS that the regulator aimed to improve monitoring of Belarusian products due to an unusual growth of dairy imports from Lithuania and Poland, and fish imports from Norway in September.
Agency data showed Belarus imported about 1,100 tonnes of chilled and frozen fish for the whole of July, and about 2,500 tonnes in just 15 days in September.
Poland supplied the republic with 260 tonnes of scalded cream in July and 3,500 tonnes from September 1-15, data showed. Lithuania started importing scalded cream to Belarus in August and reached 264 tonnes from September 1-15.
