Russian Federal Service inspectors for Veterinary and Phytosanitary have visited Croatian meat processing facilities and compiled a damning report criticizing Croatian companies, saying they saw insects in transporters and omissions in the labeling of meat, writes daily newspaper Novi list.
"Stamps are put on pig carcasses before obtaining results from the trihineloskop, and pigs are transported for slaughter with illegible identification numbers. There is no competent control of fulfillment of the general sanitary conditions of the staff of the company, the transporters can be freely accessed from the street, and in the transporter for the pasteurization of milk, insects were detected."
The Russian inspectors visited the largest food companies in Croatia earlier this year before compiling the report.
"In some companies producing meat products there is no documented laboratory confirmation of residues of banned and harmful substances in products of animal origin (antibiotics, heavy metals, dioxins, pesticides, radionuclides) in 2010, 2011 and 2012," said the Russians in the report.
