Rosselkhoznadzor 01 March 2024 19:13

The Rosselkhoznadzor, during laboratory monitoring, revealed inconsistencies in the food products supplied to Russia by several companies from the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union.
To prevent the shipment of goods that do not meet the requirements of the legislation to the domestic market, the Service has taken the following measures.
Temporary restrictions have been imposed on deliveries:
— red granular caviar from rainbow trout and hawk red frozen caviar from rainbow trout Max Fish LLC from Armenia in connection with the identification of the BGCP.
HCG can cause intestinal toxic infections, and their presence in ready-made food products indicates violations of sanitary rules, terms and temperature conditions of storage, transportation and sale, as well as the technological mode of manufacture.
Non-compliance with the established requirements for these indicators in ready-made food products is dangerous and can cause food poisoning. Young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are most susceptible.
Enhanced laboratory control has been introduced for shipments to Russia:
— canned meat for feeding young children "beef puree" by Belfood Production LLC from Belarus due to the detection of ketoprofen in the amount of 43.7 mcg/kg, meloxicam — 8.8 mcg/kg and flunixin — 4.3 mcg/kg in products. According to the regulations, the presence of these drugs in canned food is not allowed;
Ketoprofen, meloxicam and flunixin are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The drugs can cause allergic reactions and an increase in blood pressure. With prolonged excessive use of products with these products, the stomach, kidneys and liver may be affected.
— frozen blocks of veneered beef produced by Mogilev Raipo from Belarus in connection with the detection of listeria.
The bacterium Listeria monocytogenes is the causative agent of listeriosis, a disease of food origin. Human infection most often occurs when eating infected animal products, which leads to food poisoning.
