MOSCOW Aug 4 Russia's consumer protection
watchdog is preparing to suspend imports of "Kentucky Gentleman"
bourbon, adding to a growing list of products Russia has banned
since the West imposed new sanctions over Moscow's support of
rebels in Ukraine.
The Rospotrebnadzor service found signs of phthalates -
organic chemicals - in the bourbon, it said on Monday in a
statement on its website. www.rospotrebnadzor.ru
"As of now we are talking about this distillery only," a
spokesman said, referring to the U.S. Barton 1792 Distillery
where Kentucky Gentleman is made.
