Nestle's Baby Food Denied Entry to Russia

The Federal Consumer Protection Service has returned import application documents to Nestle, Lyubov Voropayeva, a spokeswoman for the agency, said Thursday.

Voropayeva declined to comment further on why the documents were returned. Gennady Onishchenko, head of the watchdog, said Nestle would not be allowed to import baby food products to Russia because of “low production standards,” RIA-Novosti reported late Wednesday.

Nestle hasn’t received any official documents from the consumer protection service regarding the import application, the company’s Russian press service said.

“Nestle meticulously inspects all the raw materials to ensure its products meet the company’s high quality standards and food safety regulations,” Nestle said in an e-mailed statement.
