Plastic Rice​


June 2017
Food Safety Rumors

​Common social media have spread that rice imported from China is plastic

The Answer

​In response to the Plastic Rice Rumor, Dubai Municipality affirms the lack of credibility of the rumor and the fact that it is not a rumor, but it is a manipulation of the consumer, which is issued from time to time for the purpose of questioning the safety of food where all types of rice in the market are normal as well as the existence of different types of high quality or low are within the approved standards. There is no such thing in the market known as the plastic rice because it is like a fantasy and easy to detect through sensing it or cooking it or by adding any substances, such as fat or oil that will simply turn into a plastic mass by heat. Therefore, the Municipality urges consumers not to publish misleading and unrealistic rumors.​
