Rospotrebnadzor Finds 22 Tonnes Of Turkish Contraband At Retail Points In January Featured

26 January 2016
As a result of inspections conducted by Russia's Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor), the head of the agency, Anna Popova, said that 18 tonnes of Turkish contraband were found during the first week of 2016, and a week later this amount increased to a total of 22 tonnes of prohibited goods.
“We expected that everyone would follow the rules and fully respect [the ban],” Popova said. “But we found violations in various regions of Russia.” IA FruitNews previously published an article regarding Rospotrebnadzor's intention to inspect for Russian retailers for prohibited Turkish food products. The items were not hard to spot, according to Popova. Because the products that were identified as contraband didn't have any sort of identification to indicate another country of origin, then “of course, when a document is fake, it's easy to see”. Popova added that Turkish goods that were imported prior to January 1 are allowed to be sold on store shelves.
