The Food Safety Department of Dubai Municipality has responded to a rumour circulating through a video clip on the social media about the smell of nylon coming out of dough when it was burned.   
The Food Safety Department reiterated that all food establishments are subject to periodic inspections and samples of products manufactured in the emirate are continuously taken to ensure compliance with food safety standards and specifications.
It further clarified that most food products have an unacceptable odor when burned, although they are not nylon.
The Department pointed out that the method of burning of food products, which are shown through the videos on social media on a continuous basis is not a scientific method to examine food products, but there are tests conducted in laboratories and there are scientific procedures to examine these products.
The Municipality indicated that the video was presented by a person who is not a specialist in the field of food safety and most of the times the purpose of publishing such videos is usually to harm the reputation of the manufacturer or the company for commercial competition 
The official clarification comes within the "Confirmed News" initiative launched on Dubai Municipality portal, which aims to reduce the circulation of rumors that are spread through the means of social media and to correct false news and malicious rumors and address them quickly 
Dubai Municipality, represented by the Food Safety Department, is keen to ensure permanent and accurate control of all food products available in the market and that the safety of these products comes in the first place.

The video that has been shared is by an inexperienced and not specialized person in food safety field. The aim of publishing such videos is either to ruin the reputation of the product and the manufacturing company or a commercial competition.
