MOSCOW, September 18. /TASS/. Roskoshestvo conducted a large-scale study of drinking bottled water without gas in the Russian retail and found violations in 20% of samples. This is stated in the message Department on the results of the tests.

The study involved 58 samples of the most popular among Russian consumers brands. In three cases Roskoshestvo have any doubts about the safety of the product. So, in the samples Arkhyz, Elbrus and Biovita revealed increased bacterial contamination. However, this problem may be related to conditions of storage or transportation of the product, and not with violations of the production, said Roskoshestvo.

In nine cases the products did not meet the categories or properties that are declared on the label. For example, detected does not match the marking of the contents of magnesium, calcium or boron, and in one case, the product did not reach the stated targets in the total mineralization. Such violations lead consumers astray.
