MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. The Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko has proposed to Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin to return to the discussion of the labeling of bottled water, often produced low-quality products. However, she urged “not to get involved” the idea to label all goods.
“Last time at the meeting with the Prime Minister, we raised the question about the quality of bottled water. It is just a hoax people. Just tap water, where posypaetsya a composition, minerals. This is a shadow turnover, is the name mismatch, because the manufacturers simply do not have access… to the sources”, – said Matvienko at the meeting mishustina with the Council chamber of the Federation Council.
“Let’s get back to this topic, it is health, it is quality and it is a very big business,” she said.
Matvienko also called on the Prime Minister to pay attention to the quality of bottled water, which often does not match the declared on the label. As an example, she cited some foreign company that issues for imported water that “overflows… in Mytishchi”. “Everyone knows that, and law enforcement agencies, and all” – said the speaker of the upper house of Parliament. “It is clear that the rest poured into the basement, sold under the guise of imported water,” she added.
The Chairman of the Federation Council considers it unnecessary labelling of all goods. “But we would ask – now there is a trend of broadening the labeling of manufactured goods – not to get involved,” said Matvienko. “I think we should look [on the possibility of introducing a labelling], where it is reasonable,” she added.
