RUSSIA – Products from Polish milk processing union Mlekovita have been blocked by Russian authorities due to a discovery of coliform bacteria.
National food safety surveillance organisation Rosselkhoznadzor imposed the ruling on 17 April which extends to all plant products, including cheese, whey and milk powder.
The safety of Mlekovita has been reassured by company President Dariusz Sapinski who denies bacterial contamination, according to reports by dairy news Russia.
