In an inspection campaign targeting 27 grocery stores in Mussaffah Industrial Area, Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) inspectors issued nine warnings, closed a store for gross violations of food safety standards, and found 17 others in compliance with all rules and regulations.
Mohamed Jalal Al Reyaysa, Director of Communication and Community Service, ADFCA, said, "In addition to routine visits, inspectors will continue to conduct unexpected ones to ensure that all food outlets and stores adhere to food safety standards.”
Al Reyaysa described the campaign as part of the authority's strategy to ensure that consumers from all segments of our society are not at risk from foods that may pose harm.
He also explained that inspectors are checking food expiry dates, in addition to monitoring refrigerators and freezers to ensure proper usage and storage techniques. – The Gulf Today
