Summer traders of mushrooms will be caught by a special committee
Committee of anthropogenic and environmental safety and emergency approved "Action Plan to prevent mushroom poisoning among the population in 2013," said Zakarpatska Pravda. The Plan prohibits the sale of mushrooms at natural markets, railway stations, electric trains and the arrangement of mushroom and wild plant harvesting points in cities and villages.
In July and August, police officers and representatives of local authorities will be conducting joint raids to check the sale of mushrooms along the highways. "In recent years we have recorded up to thirteen cases of mushroom poisoning each year, - said the Chief Medical Officer of Transcarpathia Volodymyr Markovych. - Last year there were three such situations. Fortunately, none resulted in deaths. Regarding the settlements, where most cases of poisoning are recorded, those are Uzhgorod and Mukachevo.
