UrBC, Yekaterinburg, August 28, 2018. Sverdlovsk Region division of Rospotrebnadzor (the state-run consumer rights watchdog) inspected 35,000 kg of dairy foods in the first six months of 2018, finding 2,600 kg (7.4%) faulty, the agency’s press service reports.

The problems uncovered were the same as usual: failure to comply with the normative requirements, technical regulations on the foods’ quality, and adulteration issues.

Sverdlovsk Region Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology looked into 8,975 dairy foods samples in the first half of 2018 to check for microbiological parameters; 522 samples (6.1%) were found unsatisfactory. 117 dairy foods samples out of 1,460 (8%) failed to meet physical, chemical, and sanitary regulations. This included 57 samples of foods that ‘qualified’ as adulterated.

The samples were taken from 259 different locations, with problems determined at 112 of them (43%). All the faulty foods got banned from sale.
