Food products imported from the United States and sold in Dutch stores often don't comply with European laws and regulation, Foodwatch announced after investigating 86 such products sold by Albert Heijn, Jumbo and Jamin, among others.

According to the watchdog, none of the products fully complied with EU laws. "We already suspected that there are problems in the supervision on these types of American import products, but that not one product from a sample of over 80 products fully complied with European regulation is really scary", Foodwatch said in a statement.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has extended the import ban on food from the West, including the Netherlands, by one year. This was done in response to the European Union extending the sanctions against Russia by 6 months earlier this week.
