Sadia frozen chicken has been withdrawn from all Union Co-operative Society branches in Dubai after receiving information that they were not fit for human consumption, according to Gulf News daily.
Suhail Al Bastaki, director of the Happiness and Marketing Department at Union Coop, said the move was a precautionary measure to ensure consumers’ safety and health.
Al Bastaki called on customers who bought Sadia frozen chicken from Union Coop to approach the branch, along with the receipt and the purchased product, to get a refund.
"Once we were informed about this incident (of suspected spoilage of frozen chicken), we gave immediate instructions to pull out the chicken from all of our stores not just from the affected one," Al Bastaki said.
The company also posted the announcement on its social media pages and urged customers to contact its toll free number 8008889.
Meanwhile, Dubai Municipality has clarified that it is only an internal procedure of Union Coop and has nothing to do with health requirements, according to Khaleej Times.
