MOSCOW, August 25. /TASS/. Russia’s consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor said on Tuesday it has removed from sale washing powders and detergents of a number of foreign and Russian manufacturers amid their health safety risks.
Rospotrebnadzor 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.
A spokesperson for Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Sergeyeva, told TASS that the batches of items that fail to comply with the safety norms will be withdrawn after laboratory tests. "The laboratory tests were and will be conducted in future. There is no timeframe, the work is in line with the plan," she said.
The watchdog’s press service said the items to be removed from sale in Russia include Fairy Platinum, a popular dishwashing detergent produced by Procter & Gamble and Palmolive Natural liquid soap made by Colgate-Palmolive.
The ban also concerns a number of Henkel products, including Persil washing powder and Vernel fabric conditioner. The list includes Emsal Floor Care of Werner & Mertz GmbH, Germany and Luxus Professional of ESP-Kontract GmBX, based in the Moscow region.
