The marketing of some 25,000 bottles with Borjomi mineral water has been suspended in Moscow by Rospotrebnadzor
The marketing of some 25,000 bottles with Borjomi mineral water has been suspended in Moscow by the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Protection and Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor), says an official report of its Moscow office. Rospotrebnadzor specialists inspected 76 enterprises and firms, which produce and market mineral water, on April 18-25. They suspended the marketing of 18,400 0.5-litre bottles and of 6,672 one-litre bottles (a total of 15,872 litres) of the Borjomi mineral water. The main reason for that was the absence of documents confirming the quality and safety of mineral water (the sanitary-epidemiological certificate). A total of 119 samples of the Borjomi mineral water produced in Georgia were sent to laboratories for analysis. The results of the analyses showed that the samples did not meet the state-standard (GOST) requirements by the organoleptic, physical and chemical characteristics (ion composition – chlorides, sulphates, magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium and general mineralisation). Neither did they meet safety standards on permanent oxidation and fluorine content. In 47 samples the information, given on the label, was at variance with the mineral composition of the water. Specialists of the territorial branch of Rospotrebnadzor (Moscow) are checking the quality and safety of mineral and drinkable water in accordance with the instruction of Gennady Onishchenko, chief health officer of Russia, “On stepping up control over the production and marketing of mineral and drinkable water.” Special attention is being paid to the presence of documents on marketed products, which confirm their quality, safety, storage conditions and their compliance with GOST requirements for foodstuffs.
