Moldova: Over 2 tonnes of fruit and veg withdrawn from several markets
Over two tonnes of fruit and vegetables have been withdrawn from 11 commercial establishments in Chisinau, Balti, Ialoveni and Straseni following checks by Food Safety Agency inspectors.
The products were withdrawn due to their failure to meet the necessary quality requirements for fresh fruit and vegetables, IPN reported.
In some cases, besides the condition of the products themselves, it was found that there was a lack of information for consumers regarding the origin of the product, the category, or the additional treatments carried out in the warehouse, etc.
Also, not all fruits and vegetables on the shelves were accompanied by certificates confirming their quality and harmlessness.
