Berries from hands are dangerous

The Moscow Veterinary Committee warned Muscovites about the danger of buying mushrooms and berries in places of spontaneous trade from private individuals and asked them not to purchase products without a sanitary examination.

Conclusions on the compliance of a food product with established safety requirements are issued by the state laboratories of the veterinary and sanitary examination of the city of Moscow.

The committee's warning is due to the increased cases of the sale of mushrooms and berries contaminated with radioactive substances. The main amount of products contaminated with radionuclides was imported from the Republic of Belarus, as well as the Tambov, Vladimir and Bryansk regions.

“From the beginning of 2009 to the present, the State Veterinary Service of Moscow has identified 74 cases of berries (blueberries, cranberries) that exceeded the maximum permissible level of contamination with radioactive substances. In total, 1,045 kilograms of berries that did not meet radiation safety requirements were not allowed for sale and sent for destruction to the State Unitary Enterprise MosNPO Radon,” the committee said in a statement.
