The National Food Safety Agency suggested amending a Government decision so that the products containing vegetable fats could no longer be named dairy products, IPN reports.

In a move to make the dairy producers more responsible in terms of quality, the Agency proposes that the penalties for business entities that will sell falsified products should be made harsher.

Last weekend, the media outlets disseminated the results of a study showing that national and imported dairy products, such as butter, sour cream, cheese and pressed cheese, contain much more non-milk fats than the admissible level of 5%. In some of these, the level of vegetable fats stood at even 95.8%.

Operational group of the National Food Safety Agency collected samples from the involved dairy products to determine the microbiological and physical-chemical parameters and antibiotic residues, including the origin of fats in milk products. The National Center for Veterinary Diagnosis is examining 120 samples.
