The Arbitration Court granted the statement of the Rosselkhoznadzor Directorate for the Voronezh and Lipetsk Regions and decided to fine JSC Zadonskaya Poultry Farm by 100 thousand rubles, the regional information and reference portal Gorod48 reports.


In spring, during the unscheduled inspection of the Zadonskaya Poultry Farm of the Zeros agricultural holding, which supplies the market with more than 30 types of chilled and frozen turkey products, Rosselkhoznadzor inspectors found an increased content of tetracycline antibiotics in the fillet samples. The concentration of drugs in the products of the brand "Vinituki" exceeded the maximum permissible level by 10-15 times.

The directorate of the poultry farm, positioning its turkey meat as “a natural product grown on feed of its own production in the environmentally friendly Zadonsky district,” tried to challenge the final act of verification, but could not refute the documentary evidence of violation of technical regulations.
