“These confectionary products have been tested, although there was no
particular need for such tests. Consumers can relax. The sweets
delivered to Moldova do not contain anything hazardous to health and
they comply with the necessary standards,” Bumacov was quoted as saying.
The Kazakh Health Ministry’s state sanitary and epidemiological
oversight committee earlier tested seven products of the Ukrainian
confectionary company Roshen and found no benzopyrene in them.
The Russian consumer protection watchdog Rospotrebnadzor on July 29
imposed a ban on imports of confectionery products from the Ukrainian
factories of Roshen due to quality concerns. The corporation has
dismissed the accusations, earlier reports said.
