Some food outlets violate food safety regulations on busy occasions - official.
Abu Dhabi’s food control authority is urging residents to cooperate to ensure food safety during Eid and throughout the extended holidays, according to a report.Some food establishments tend to violate food safety regulations on such busy occasions, especially while transporting food items, a senior official of the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) told Gulf News daily.
"Our inspectors keep a tight watch ahead of Eid and even until the end of the holidays, but we need the cooperation of the public who [also serve as] our eyes on market," Mohammad Jalal Al Reyaysa, ADFCA’s communication and information manager said,
"The government sector is taking a long holiday for Eid and the National Day, so businesses tend to be negligent, thinking that official machinery is weak during holidays," Al Reyaysa told the UAE-based daily.
He added that inspectors will be on duty round the clock even during the holidays to deal with any complaints on food safety.
