MOSCOW, January 13. /TASS/. Russia’s food safety control service Rospotrebnadzor has not banned sales of Ukrainian and Belarusian salt in Russia, a press secretary said, commenting on reports about recommendations not to sell salt produced by two Ukrainian and two Belarusian companies.
“The situation has not changed since December 12. No additional restrictions have been imposed,” Rospotrebnadzor press secretary Anna Sergeyeva told TASS.
Earlier, TASS reported that the federal service tightened control beginning December 12, 2014, over supplies of salt from Ukraine and Belarus because products of Ukraine’s Artemsol and Slavyanskaya Sol and Belarusian Mozyrsol and Belkaly did not meet food safety requirements. Specialists had detected violations of requirements for various admixtures and iodine and other organic content in the salt, the service said.
The press secretary said that letters had been sent by some regional departments of the federal service to trade companies to receive information whether their stores had the products, but no recommendations were given to ban the sales.
The Kommersant newspaper said on Tuesday that some departments of Rospotrebnadzor sent letters to trade networks in December 2014, asking to give information whether they had salt of Artemsol, Slavyanskaya Sol, Mozyrsol and Belkaly in stores “to remove it from sales.”
