A supermarket in Abu Dhabi was shut down, after an administrative closure decision was issued by the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority.

Located in Musaffah, Abu Dhabi, “High Quality Foodstuff Trading - One Person Company LLC”, was closed due to live poultry being sold in a storeroom inside the supermarket with preserved food items.
