MOSCOW, August 25. /TASS/. Russia’s consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor is conducting an unscheduled inspection at Germany’s Henkel plant in the Perm Territory, in Russia’s Urals region, a local official of the authority said on Tuesday.
"An unscheduled check is ongoing, the samples of goods have been selected. As of today, the work on all the samples is underway," Natalya Ponomaryova said, adding that there is yet no information on whether they comply with the safety rules.
Earlier on Tuesday, Rospotrebnadzor said it had removed from sale washing powders and detergents of a number of foreign and Russian manufacturers due to health safety risks.
The watchdog said in a statement on its website that it has found "incompliance on toxicological safety indicators" and the goods that do not meet the necessary demands will be banned from sale.
Among these manufacturers are Henkel Rus, Colgate-Palmolive, The Clorox Company, Werner & Mertz GmbH, Procter & Gamble and Russia’s Nevskaya Kosmetica, the watchdog said.
