 Rospotrebnadzor plans to pay more attention to unreliable information about the content of allergens, including milk, gluten and nuts on the labels of products. This was stated by the head of the department, Anna Popova.

She noted that a person with allergies must be sure that the list of components on the product label corresponds to the raw materials and additives used. But she noted that sometimes "situations are different." According to Popova, this is a violation of the law on food safety, consumer rights and "acute risk".

“Here, the price of a manufacturer’s mistake, intentional or unintentional, is incredibly high: health, and sometimes human life. Of course, we are fighting with this and in the future we will pay even more attention to this problem ”said the head of the Rospotrebnadzor.
