The ministry of climate change and the environment has issued a warning about seizing the import of Japanese Kikkoman soy sauce due to its alcohol content.
The Ministry also bans the circulation of the product in the UAE market in accordance with ministerial resolution No (539) of 2012 on the Standard Guide to the Procedures for the Prohibition of Handling and Banning of Food.
The decision was made based on the results of the tests conducted by specialized accredited laboratories, which confirmed that several samples of the product with different production dates violated the rules.
The Ministry also clarifies that this decision targets specifically Kikkoman soy sauce made in Japan and does not include Kikkoman products produced in other countries.
The ministry of climate change and environment emphasizes that all food products in the UAE, whether locally produced or imported, are safe for consumption, they underlined.
