UAE bans Kikkoman soy sauce over alcohol content

DUBAI: The UAE has banned the import and circulation of the Japanese Kikkoman soy sauce product and called on consumers to dispose of any they still have, because it contains alcohol, state news agency WAM has reported.
The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, MOCCAE, issued the warning under the country’s food regulation laws, which include the banning of certain products.
The ruling came after a series of tests revealed alcohol in a number of different samples of the product, violating the UAE’s laws.
The ministry called on consumers to dispose of any Japanese-made Kikkoman soy sauce, but added that any other products made by the company in other countries were not included in the ban.
