On 1 October 2019, how many countries will be on Russia's food embargo list?

Russia embargoed food imports from the United States, EU member states, Canada, Australia, and Norway in August 2014 as retaliation for Western sanctions imposed after Russia's annexation of Crimea (European Commission). Iceland, Albania, Montenegro, Liechtenstein, and Ukraine were later added to the list (Yahoo). The embargo on these 37 countries was last extended through 31 December 2018 (Radio Free Europe). Since 2014, certain products have been exempted from the embargo (USDA Foreign Agricultural Services), but the list of covered countries has only expanded.
