Russian Consumer Rights Watchdog Identifies Low-Quality Ukrainian Cheese
Offensive cheeses: Russian watchdog finds vegetable fats in Ukranian cheese

Rospotrebnadzor, a Russian Consumer Rights Watchdog, headed by Gennady Onischenko, published a list of low-quality Ukrainian cheese. Fourteen sorts of cheese are said to contain vegetable fats, but the labels do not provide this information, thus misleading the Russian customer.

      The majority of "offensive" cheeses are produced in Poltava, Chernihiv, and Sumy Regions of Ukraine. The names of some brands are quite popular among Russian consumers, e.g. Rossiysky, Kostromskoi, Smetankovy, and Dutch (Hollandaise). The vegetable fats contained in them are palmitoleic and linoleic acids and phytosterols.

      Gennady Onischenko announced that as of May 2012 Russia plans to toughen quality control of Ukrainian goods at the customs border. The watchdog is concerned that quality control of consumer goods in Ukraine has recently been transferred over to a veterinary agency, which, according to Onischenko, equals the Ukrainians to animals. As a result, Rospotrebnadzor is eager to monitor the quality of imported Ukrainian goods, especially the dairy products. In the event of Ukraine's failure to sustain the expected quality level, the watchdog promises tough measures.
