Russia has suspended the import of some products from China

Rospotrebnadzor found prohibited components in Chinese freeze-dried noodles, corn chips and several other products.  This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the agency's website.

The import of corn noodles, eggs with chocolate cream dessert, cookies with a surprise toy inside were also suspended.  They found DNA from genetically modified corn and DNA from genetically modified soybeans in an amount of more than 0.9 percent.

In some samples, their content is five times exceeded.  In addition, there is no mention of the presence of these components on the product labeling.  The department has suspended the import of products until further notice.

In September, the Rosselkhoznadzor discovered the brown wrinkle virus in Turkish tomatoes, which causes vegetables to rot.  Brown monilious rot was also found in peaches, plums from Serbia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Georgia.

The Russian side regularly discusses these issues with representatives of the relevant ministries of the supplying countries.
