Dubai Municipality (DM) has refuted claims made in a viral video showing mold on a product at popular ice cream shop Baskin Robbins.
A video was recently posted on social media and the owner of the video blamed DM for lack of food control as he asked for intense control over food institutions.
After exploring the issue and communicating with the company, the department stated that the video wasn't filmed in Dubai or even in UAE.
Baskin Robbins ice cream is safe for consumption, said the authority: "Dubai Municipality confirms that it has an integrated system consisting of strict procedures to ensure control of all traded food in the emirate. The Municipality also uses the self-monitoring method on food institutions to ensure full compliance with all specifications and legislations adopted in the country."
Dubai Municipality deplored the 'use of lack knowledge' in a way that places blame on DM for any circulated video. Additionally, Dubai Municipality condemned those who publish any false information without confirming the source.
