Khaleej Times has reached out to the SEDD for a comment.

The municipality official stressed that the health and safety of consumers is its "top priority" and it ensures this through routine inspection visits to ensure compliance with health standards.

This incident comes days after a bakery worker in Ajman was detained for spitting on a piece of bread before putting it inside the oven.
