UAE bans US-made Kikkoman soy sauce

(Official website)

The product was in violation of safety standards

The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) has issued a decision to withdraw the US-made low sodium Kikkoman soy sauce product due to its intoxicating content. The decision followed the results of the specialised and accredited laboratory tests that confirmed the product's violation of safety standards.

The ministry has urged consumers to dispose of the product if they have purchased it.

The ministry stressed that all food products in the UAE - whether locally produced or imported - are safe for consumption as they are strictly monitored by the ministry and the relevant local authorities.

"There is constant coordination with relevant authorities in the UAE to ensure the safety of all imported and traded food products. The ministry reiterates that all imported and traded products undergo a strict control system in accordance with the best international practices at all stages of the food chain," the ministry said.
