The Federal Service for Supervising the Protection of Consumers' Rights and Human Wellbeing is conducting a planned sanitary and epidemiological evaluation of children's games and toys, the press service of this government department reported on Tuesday. Not only Russian but also imported toys are being checked in all regions of the country. Within the first eight months of 2004 the State Sanitary and Epidemiological Inspectorate found out gross violations in the sale of children's toys in the subjects of the Russian Federation, the press release says. The toys were sold without the documents confirming their harmfulness in the Tula, Bryansk, Smolensk and Oryol regions, in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area and in the Republic of Adygeya. The Inspectorate has found out considerable violations in the following sanitary norms: the higher level of smell and toxicity, the press release says. "The toys contained methyl alcohol, phenol (the maximum permissible concentration was 2-130 times higher in the Republic of Mordovia, the Republic of Buryatia, the Chuvash Republic , in the Smolensk, Tambov, Nizhny Novgorod, Kostroma and Rostov regions), formaldehyde [in the Republic of Mordovia and the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania]." The toys in the Chuvash Republic contained oil products and toluene, in the Novosibirsk region - chromium which exceeded 1.5 times the permissible norms, zinc - 23 times exceeded the norms, and cadmium - six times exceeded the norms, the press release says. "In all the cases of violations, the sale of the toys was stopped by the resolutions of the chief state sanitary doctors. Administrative measures were also taken, in a number of territories the cases have been sent to the prosecutor's office," the press release says. In 2003, 2.71% of the toy samples, taken all over the country, did not meet sanitary norms, the document says.
