May 3, 2007 14:12

During recent food safety checks of imported products the Russian veterinary and phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor has rejected a 24-tonne consignment of seafood cocktail made in China due to presence of staphylococcus in the samples checked.

More specifically, as of 3 May 2007 Rosselkhoznadzor has introduced temporary restrictions for import of products made by Chinese SZHEJIANC DAISHAN BAOFA AQUATIC PRODUCT CO, LTD.

At the same time, the Russian vets from Rosselkhoznadzor have asked China's main state body in charge of inspection, quality checks and quarantine to do a similar investigation in order to find out the reasons of the bacterial contamination of the products meant for export to Russia.
