United Arab Emirate’s Union Cooperative confirmed that it has taken preventive measures and removed contaminated Sadia Chicken from all branches after receiving information from concerned authorities that it is not good for consumption.
Suhail Albastaki, director of Happiness and Marketing, called on consumers who bought the chicken to go to their nearest Union Cooperative branch to refund their money.
Meanwhile, Dubai Municipality said the withdrawal of Sadia Chicken by Union Cooperative is only an internal procedure and has nothing to do with health requirements.
According to Iman Al Bastaki, director of Food Safety Department at Dubai Municipality, there is no official decision to withdraw the product and the regulatory bodies have no relation to the subject.
But Al Bastaki confirmed that the products are subject to periodic monitoring by Dubai Municipality and other regulatory bodies and they take actions if necessary.
