The Food and Agriculture Organization of Russia has found that fish produced in Kazakhstan are harmful to human health. They checked goods that were transported to Russia within the framework of the Customs Union and found an additive of benzopyrene from the Kazakhstani sprats.

Benzopyrene is a chemical additive. It appears when burning hydrocarbons. It is a category of carcinogenic substances. The person who uses it can have a cancer. So, the Russian commodity monitoring organization may ban the fishery products produced by Kazakhstani companies.
