KEMEROVO, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - Governor of Kemerovo region, Aman Tuleyev, ordered to carry out inspections of the food and nutrition system in regional educational institutions in the wake of an incident in a kindergarten in Yurga, a town in the Kuzbass coalfields in Southern Siberia. The kindergarten's cook found some foreign substance in bread, which later turned out to be rat poison, a spokesman for the region’s administration said.
Law enforcement authorities along with the Russian consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor are investigating the case. It has already been established that the bread was baked by the company Kemerovokhleb.
“Sanitary inspectors are to check now the nutrition units in all schools and kindergartens where the product might have been supplied, along with other educational institutions in order to ensure their compliance with sanitary standards,” the press-service said
The governor ordered to reward the vigilant cook, who had found the dangerous poison before any harm was done.
