MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. Russian food safety agency Rospotrebnadzor banned as of Monday imports of Ukrainian salt produced by Artemsol state enterprise citing presence of prohibited ingredients in the product, the agency said on its website.
“Research results of the federal state sanitary and epidemiological inspection and federal state inspection in the sphere of consumer rights protection revealed violations of the current legislature by the producer at the issue,” the agency said in its statement.
Starting from November 2014, the Federal Service for the Protection of Consumers’ Rights (Rospotrebnadzor) tightened control over salt deliveries via border checkpoints after it found incompatibilities with requirements concerning preservatives, iodine and organoleptic indicators.
