Following the Turkish mandarins, Rospotrebnador introduced a ban on the import of lemons from Turkey into Russia. In broken lines, grown at one and the enterprise in the city of Tarsus in the south of the central part of the country, an excess of the permissible level of pesticides was revealed.

"The Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare informs about the detection of fresh lemons in food products ... violations of mandatory legal requirements (residual amounts of the pesticide Chlorpyrifos were found, the concentration of which exceeds the maximum permissible level)", - the statement of Rospotrebnadzor says.

The department clarified that the ban comes into force from today - November 3.

We are talking about the manufacturer Gonder Soguk Hava Depolama Hizmetleri Ve Tarim Urunleri Gida Sanayi Ticaret Limited.

It's worth reminding that on October 28, Rospotrebnador suspended the import of tangerines from one and Turkish manufacturers into the territory of the Russian Federation after they revealed a dangerous level of the pesticide Chlorpyrifos.

Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor banned the import into the country from China of chips, cookies and noodles containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In some types of food, the level of GMOs exceeded the permissible norm by five times.
