Russia Cracks Down on Ukrainian Cheese Again
Russia is frowning on Ukrainian cheese once again. After rigorous testing, 39 tons of Ukrainian cheese was deemed unfit for sale to the Russian public due to sanitary issues. Still more is undergoing testing, while Ukrainian companies struggle to fix issues:
According to the Russian Federal Consumer Rights Protection and Human Health Control Service, 29 samples of cheese produced by four Ukrainian enterprises are undergoing the laboratory study now.
In addition, in June 2012, the Russian Federal Service experts found numerous violations and irregularities in the cheese products produced by the Lozovsky Milk Factory LLC (Ukraine).
It is noted that the Lozovsky Milk Factory developed and presented the action plan on combating the identified violations. Upon review of the plan, the Russian Service sent back its comments to the plan as it did not include all the activities required to combat the violations.
