Russian cows fed manure

From the report of the Rosselkhoznadzor hair stand on end. Understand that the disclosed violations are only the tip of the iceberg and much remains behind the scenes. It’s amazing how we are still alive. For example, the inspection of dairy farms in Orel region showed that the silo used as storage for manure and hay and sernauto that give cows, the nitrates and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In the milk found antibiotics tetracycline group. In the USSR they were prescribed as a cure for acne, but then found that with prolonged use they cause dysbiosis and can even lead to infectious diseases.

Let’s start with a large trading network of Federal importance. Quality control of ground beef have revealed that the retailer extends its shelf life through further processing. Explain. The manufacturer indicates on vacuum pack shelf life — 12 hours. But enterprising merchants added to the semi-finished product, with the result that the shelf life is extended to 48-72 hours.

Moreover, from the same retailer revealed another violation. Thus, storage of raw meat was carried out in plastic boxes at a temperature of plus 15, then as the standards dictate — not above plus 4. Such a violation creates a fertile ground for development in the meat putrefactive microflora, and for the consumer is fraught with food poisoning.

We also found out that no Western and anti-Western sanctions can not block the illegal flow of food from Ukraine and Poland. “Bilateral” business knows what is and however risks. Podcasting products continue to be in Russia by the curves well trodden paths, however, without the involvement of a third party.

The Rosselkhoznadzor administration for Tver and Pskov regions found that of Belarus under the guise of goods from Serbia were imported Ukrainian strawberry (12 tons). In the inspection of cargo identified many signs of breakdown of the labels. The remaining fragments are eloquent about the Ukrainian trace.

In Dagestan (and not for the first time at the wholesale warehouse found prohibited for import into Russia of Polish apples. Label importer — Belarus.

Upsets even the brotherly Syria. In the inspection of Syrian oranges, the specialists of the Rosselkhoznadzor administration for Krasnodar Krai and Adygea was identified pest, the Mediterranean fruit fly. As the name implies, it is dangerous for most popular fruit — apricots, apples, plums, cherries, tomatoes and more for over 200 species of plants.

All violations were brought to light only for one day the end of may. And every day they only multiply.

As recently as may 25 they were thwarted attempts of import in the Moscow region 39 tonnes of Polish apples, again following from Belarus. Marking “made in Macedonia” turned out to be fake.

Imported feed and supplements designed for our animals and birds, from Latvia, Lithuania, Germany and Austria also cause more complaints. Due to this, in the opinion of the relevant experts managed to prevent a mass poisoning, maybe even death of pigs. For example, in the vitamin mix from Belgium found two dangerous poison: cadmium and mercury. They not only can not be eaten, but you can touch them only with rubber gloves. Substances cause the Central nervous system, kidneys, liver.

Complete the story with the milk. In the framework of monitoring the safety of food products was analyzed pasteurized milk, produced in the Rostov region. The newly found antibiotics tetracycline group, which is not allowed.

It turns out that the slogan of the cartoon — “Drink children milk – will be healthy!” — in our day evokes only a bitter smile.
