Dubai Municipality warned residents not to fall for the latest rumour circulating on social media. The rumour raised concern from residents as it suggested that some fastfood chains in the emirate contained harmful antibiotics in their meat and chicken. The municipality has confirmed that the grades belonged to another country, although they did not specify which one.
On its official Facebook page, Dubai Municipality assured that all food imported into the UAE are safe and adhere to strict safety protocols that follow Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) regulations.
“Kindly note there are international regulations for meat and chicken, based on the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), and the circulating grades are not issued by an official or concerned entity, but a media website.”
Dubai Municipality also pointed that according to the International Notification System, the authority did not receive any notification regarding the matter.
