BRUSSELS - Almost a third of branded food products sold in the European Union have the same or similar packaging, but different contents, according to a report published by the European Commission on Monday.

However, the report did not find that there was a noticeable split between the east and west of the bloc, despite complaints from former communist countries that multinationals sell lower quality food in their markets.

The study into nearly 1,400 samples of 128 different food products in 19 EU countries found that 9% of products had identical and 22% similar package fronts, but different compositions.
