Roskachestvo: 40% of Philadelphia rolls have E. coli

This situation is observed in all restaurants of the country.

The head of Roskachestvo Maxim Protasov said in an interview with Izvestia that in Russia, regardless of the catering establishment, 40% of Philadelphia rolls have E. coli, and the excess in the number of microorganisms was recorded in 100% of these rolls.

"In 40% of the rolls we examined, E. coli was found. In 100% of cases, that is, in all Philadelphia rolls that were included in the purchase, both from restaurants (including the premium segment), and from retail chains, and from specialized stores of the take away format, excess in the number of microorganisms were detected", - Protasov stressed.

This trend indicates incorrect storage of products, non-compliance with the temperature regime and violation of sanitary and hygienic standards.

At the same time, the head of the department pointed out that it is impossible to call rolls a fish product, since for this they must contain more than 40% of fish. But according to the tests conducted by Roskachestvo, it turned out that the rolls contain 9-31% of fish from the specific weight of the product. The agency is going to advocate for the normalization of microbiological indicators in rolls.

It's worth reminding that in the middle of last year in Togliatti, more than two dozen people were poisoned by rolls that were ordered from the same delivery service. A pregnant woman was also among the injured. 11 people were hospitalized in a moderate condition, the rest were on outpatient treatment.
