Russia banned the import of cheese, produced in Ukraine because of irregularities of its manufacture, Russia’s public health watchdog Rospotrebnadzor stated Monday.

MOSCOW, October 13 (RIA Novosti) - Russia banned the import of cheese, produced in Ukraine because of irregularities of its manufacture, Russia’s public health watchdog Rospotrebnadzor stated Monday.

"Rospotrebnadzor has suspended the import into the territory of the Russian Federation of cheese products produced in Ukraine... from 14.10.2014," the statement said.

According to the health watchdog, while testing the Ducat rennet product with vegetable fat, the experts came to the conclusion that it does not meet the requirements on the content of fats, protein, as well as organoleptic and microbiological parameters, while Colon bacillus and Staphylococcus aureus were found in the other cheese.

In August, Rospotrebnadzor banned imports of Ukrainian alcoholic beverages and beer. In September, the watchdog decided to ban imports of Ukrainian candy and confectioneries.
