One third of meat and dairy products fail inspection in Ukraine

 

 

The State Inspectorate for Consumer Protection has rejected a third of the inspected dairy and meat products.

 

Between January and September, about 400tonnes of meat products were tested in sale networks all over Ukraine, of which 36% were rejected and withdrawn from sale.

 

Furthermore, about 200tonnes of dairy products were tested, of which 35% were rejected and removed from sale.

 

These items were taken from sale due to the lack of necessary, accurate information that deprived the consumer of the possibility to choose a product, reads the statement.

 

The territorial authorities on consumer protection imposed more than UAH2.4 million (US$299million) in administrative fines and about UAH6.1million (US$761million) in administrative and economic penalties.

 

Earlier, the Antimonopoly Committee began checking the quality of food products and compliance with economic competition in these markets.
