Now the fine for legal persons who commit the implementation of food products with expired shelf life, is from 20 to 30 thousand rubles. The person who has purchased a defective product and contacted regulatory authorities may seek compensation only through the courts, said the Deputy.
According to Vlasov, the practice shows that in such a situation, citizens usually can only rely on symbolic compensation.
"In this regard, I ask you to consider the feasibility of establishing a legal mechanism whereby a citizen who will reveal the fact of the offense (sale of expired food products) and report this to the regulatory authorities, will be able to rely upon the imposition of the fine to half its amount," — wrote in the petition, the MP.
Due to this economic stimulus, says the author of the initiative, the country will increase public control over violations relating to selling expired products.
Earlier on Monday in Roskoshestvo toldthat 75% of Russian buyers have become more likely to pay attention to the date of manufacture of the products.
