The Iranian Tobacco Company is being urged to adopt better supervisory measures regarding the distribution of cigarettes in the country.
(TEHRAN PRESS TV) - An Iranian official says some of the most popular cigarette brands are contaminated with nuclear substances when smuggled into the country.
"Some of the most famous cigarette brands worldwide including Marlboro, which accounts for the bulk of smuggled cigarettes [into the Islamic Republic] are tainted with [hazardous] nuclear materials," Mehr News Agency quoted Mohammad-Reza Madani from the Society for Fighting Smoking as saying on Friday.
"The largest tobacco companies in the world use various tricks in order to keep their markets and increase their sales," Madani added.
He went on to add that the company responsible for the production of the tainted cigarettes is the "Philip Morris International, which is led by Zionists (Israelis)," and sells Marlboro outside the US.
The Iranian official also referred to a confidential report released a few years ago, in which the contamination of the "Philip Morris" cigarettes was confirmed.
He called on the Iranian Tobacco Company to adopt better supervisory measures regarding the distribution of cigarettes in the country.
"Philip Morris" is an international tobacco company with market demand in over 160 countries.
Its main brands include Marlboro, L&M, Longbeach, Philip Morris, Bond Street and Chesterfield.
