Rospotrebnadzor has withdrawn from circulation over three tons of bakery products that do not meet the standards. This was reported on April 15 on the agency’s website.

Studies have shown that in terms of the content of toxic elements, mycotoxins and pesticides, the proportion of samples of bakery products that do not meet the standards was 0.03%. The proportion of samples that do not meet the standards for the content of mold, yeast and pathogenic microorganisms was over 1.6%. In terms of moisture, consistency, acidity and crumb condition, slightly more than 2% of the samples did not meet the stated requirements.
