Ukrainians have been warned about the importation of poisoned Egyptian tangerines into the country. They contain the dangerous pesticide dimethoate. The products were imported by a company registered in Kyiv.

The tangerines were purchased in Egypt and imported through Greece. This was reported by the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection. "(Tangerines - Ed.) were exported from Greece (exporter: DROSERO TRADE SMPC, Giannitsa) to Ukraine (recipient: Fudkom LLC, 57 Zaliznychne Shosse St., Kyiv, 01014; place of delivery: Martusivka village, Boryspil district, Kyiv region)," the statement said.

The batch of hazardous products will be completely withdrawn. Consumers are asked to contact the territorial offices of the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection if they find such fruits.

The agency warned that dimethoate, which is used to control pests, has "moderate toxicity." It is prohibited to use it on berry crops, as well as fruit plantations where berries, vegetables, and herbs are grown between rows.

According to the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF), the permissible level of the chemical in the detected fruit was 33 times higher than the permissible level. At the same time, it was not known whether the tangerines had entered Ukraine before the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection issued its notification.

Earlier, the pathogenic toxic microorganism Bacillus cereus was found in sauces imported from the Netherlands in the Ternopil region. This microorganism can cause food poisoning, stomach diseases, etc.

In addition, coffee was found to be hazardous to health in Ukraine. It was imported from Germany. An excessive amount of chlorpyrifos was found in the coffee, which could lead to heart disorders, neuropathy, gastritis, etc.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, in Ukraine, consumers are often sold counterfeit butter in markets and supermarkets. But while the share of counterfeit products in retail chains is about 40%, almost all products in the markets are falsified.
