Dubai Municipality denied accuracy of a video clip that shows burning potato chips.
The Food Safety Department of Dubai Municipality clarified that the escalation of fire flames on the fried potato is a natural result of burning carbohydrates, oils and salt contained in the product, and does not indicate the presence of any chemicals that can seriously affect the safety of food product.
Dubai Municipality appealed to the public not to circulate any video or rumor without checking the facts and relying on scientific references.

The management of food safety confirms the invalidity of what was circulated in the video of burning manufactured potato chips that went on social media. Burning and flaming of potato chips is a natural reaction of the combustion of carbohydrates, oils and salt contained in the product, and does not indicate that the product contains chemicals that affect consumer's safety. We ask people not to circulate any videos or news without relying on authorized scientific references. Consumers should not doubt the safety of food products, as regulatory authorities take all necessary procedures to ensure food safety at all stages of manufacturing, and Dubai Municipality sends all food products for sampling and laboratory testing. Consumer Protection & Safety is the most important objective of food safety management. Please contact Food Safety Department to obtain the correct information from the source based on scientific references, and based on the approved international standards. #??? #?????_??? #?????_?????? #?????_?????_?????? #dubai #mydubai #dubaimunicipality #No_More_Rumors
