Eco-products are not really ecological

Over 60 per cent of eco-products checked by the Consumer Protection Authority had deficiencies, the control teams discovering sour cherry jam sold as sweet cherry jam, or butter and lemon biscuits that in fact contained no lemon, Constantin Cerbulescu, President of the National Authority for Consumer Protection (ANPC), stated on Monday. The main deficiencies discovered consist of erroneous labels and incomplete information, the quality of eco-products and price labels. Likewise, there were products whose real components differed from those claimed. Last year ANPC registered over 50,000 complaints, almost half of them concerning the non-food products’ market, and 22.9 per cent of them concerning non-food products. Mobile and landline phone services top the table of products and services that were targeted by most complaints, followed by electricity supply services, cable TV services, internet services and bank credits.
