On Sakhalin, in two large batches of frozen broiler chickens from a producer from Mordovia, antibiotic residues were found. About it informed press service of the Primorsky Interregional Department of Rosselkhoznadzor 24 November. The total weight of the product is 11.7 tons. The study was ordered by one of the law enforcement agencies, which purchased meat for its employees.
Residual amounts of antibiotics and other antimicrobial chemotherapeutic substances were found in the bird. This may indicate a violation of the timing of the slaughter of chickens after the use of antibiotics for the treatment of poultry.
The products do not meet the requirements of the technical regulations “On the safety of meat and meat products”, “On the safety of food products” and GOST “Chicken meat. Specifications". According to experts, eating meat with antibiotics can cause an allergic reaction and lead to a decrease in sensitivity to the action of drugs.
Urgent reports on the results of the study were sent to the owner of the product, as well as to the central office and territorial departments of the Rosselkhoznadzor and the regional veterinary departments.
