MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. Over 1.5 tons of unsafe household chemicals were withdrawn from sale this year, head of the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) Anna Popova said on Wednesday in an interview with Russia 24 TV Channel.
Systemic inspections of household chemicals in Russian stores are taking place from the middle of spring 2015, Popova said.
"The number of completed tests is over 570. The quantity of products of this kind withdrawn from sale across the whole this period is over 1.5 tons but this is not the event occurred yesterday or today," she added.
On August 25 Rospotrebnadzor announced withdrawal of certain detergents and cleansers produced by Henkel, Procter & Gamble, Nevskaya Kosmetika, ESP-Contract GmbH, Werner & Mertz GmbH, Colgate-Palmolive, and Clorox Company in view of noncompliance with safety requirements. Only unsafe lots will be withdrawn and this will not affect the whole product range. Withdrawn products will be returned to manufacturers.
