Russians Cheese Factory 1

WEB DESK – An interesting yet serious situation arises all over Russia and Siberian city of Omsk when workers of a cheese factory posted photos of taking bath in bathroom tub filled with milk.

According to the details published in Russian news media outlets, the Russian cheesemakers have sparked strong condemnation online as pictures showing naked men swimming in milk hit the web. Said to be just a joke, the incident has now curdled into serious consumer complaints.

The reports also suggest that not only photos but a video too posted online. After that concern authorities conducted an unscheduled inspection at the cheese factory, in the Siberian city of Omsk. Consumers are accusing the dairy factory of contaminating the cheese.

Artem Romanov, allegedly one of the workers, created an album on his VKontakte social network account. Titled “In fact our job is very boring))))))” the albums contained a bunch of photos, showing him and his male colleagues all reclining naked together in a large vat of milk.


It appears the cheesemakers were taking part in a celebration. According to one version, they were seeing in the New Year’s holiday, but a spokeswoman for Russia’s state consumer rights watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, said it was one of the men’s birthday.

However, the date and time when the pictures were uploaded – on the evening of December, 31, 2013 – backs up the idea that the men were celebrating New Year’s.
