Russia’s Rospotrebnadzor consumer rights watchdog is checking American bourbon whiskey, in particular Kentucky Gentleman produced by Barton 1792 Distillery, on quality concerns, its press service reports on Monday.Russia focusing on products imported that contain poisons and pesticides and GMO's seems to be a good move and perhaps we should also take a look at how we spend our money. There are also other aspects to some products that are poisonous.
It said Kentucky Gentleman bourbon had not gone through state registration as to its compliance with regulations of the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, although its label bears the EAC mark for products turnover in the market of the Customs Union member-states.
Rospotrebnadzor also said phthalates had been found in that bourbon whiskey “which may cause functional and later organic changes in the central and peripheral nervous system, endocrine system, as well as oncologic diseases and male and female infertility”.
The Kentucky Gentleman brand and Barton Distillery are subsidiaries of The Sazerac Company, a jewish owned private company based out of Louisiana which is the largest distilling company in the United States.
Bill Goldring, Chairman of its Board of Directors, also leads the Goldring Family Foundation which contributes millions of dollars to various institutions including Birthright Israel which promotes zionism to the jewish youth of America.
The vision of Taglit-Birthright Israel is to strengthen Jewish identity, Jewish communities and solidarity with Israel by providing a 10-day trip to Israel for young Jewish people.Poison products or poison ideology. We can boycott both even if it does effect American workers which is a shame.
Not stopping at whiskey...
Russia announced on Thursday that it was banning the import of a wide range of food and agricultural products from Europe and the United States, among others, responding to Western-imposed sanctions and raising the level of confrontation between the West and Moscow over the future of Ukraine.
Dmitri A. Medvedev, the prime minister, announced that Russia would ban all beef, pork, fruit, vegetables and dairy products from the European Union, the United States, Canada, Australia and Norway for one year.
Below is the list of banned products:
- cattle meat, fresh, chilled or frozen;
- pork, fresh, chilled or frozen;
- poultry and its subproducts, fresh, chilled or frozen;
- all salted, dried or smoked meats;
- fish, shellfish, scallops and other aquatic invertebrates;
- milk and dairy products;
- sausage and similar meat products;
Here's a question. Why didn't Russia include Israel in its ban of these products?
