MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. There are no plans on the current agenda for banning the import of any household chemicals, the head of the consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, said on the Rossiya-24 television news channel.
"Where it is necessary we have been conducting checks for the past few days in order to see why some products fail to meet the existing standards and to eliminate those products. No ban on sale or import of such products has been or is on the agenda," Popova said.
The items in question were tested on laboratory animals.
"It was systemic work. We used the classical methods to test toxicity on animals. This method, if used in full, takes no less than two or three weeks," Popova said.
Rospotrebnadzor officials and representatives of the retailers’ association ACORT held a meeting in Moscow earlier on Wednesday. A source familiar with the results of the meeting has told TASS Rospotrebnadzor will remove from supermarket shelves only those batches of products that may prove unsafe. Banning all products of the brands earlier mentioned in the mass media is not on the agenda. Only those products which have proved to be unsafe as a result of experiments will have to be withdrawn from the market.
Rospotrebnadzor on August 25 declared it had suspended sale of some detergents produced by Henkel, Procter&Gamble, OJSC Nevskaya Kosmetika, CJSC ESP Kontrakt GmBH, Werner&Mertz GmBH, Colgate-Palmolive and the Clorox Company for their failure to meet safety requirements.
