Finnish stores may still sell plastic cups and containers containing bamboo or other unauthorized plant fibers, reports Helsingin sanomat newspaper.
The Food Agency has found that stores still stock children’s tableware and takeaway mugs containing a blend of bamboo and plastic.
Last year, the European Commission found that plastic containers containing bamboo could release dangerous amounts of formaldehyde.
At the end of last year, the Finnish Food Safety Authority ordered distributors to stop importing non-compliant plastic food packaging due to health problems related to long-term use.
The Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority informed HS that consumers who had purchased bamboo plastic containers were entitled to a full refund.

According to Seligson, the market seems to be investing in bypassing inflation.
KL notes, however, that Seligson believes that the economy is entering a new phase characterized by growth, inflation and rising interest rates.
