Burn the Dough Rumor

​​​​a viral video on social media, showing a dough burning and a smell of nylon coming out of it when it burns

The Answer

​​In response to a viral video on social media, showing a dough burning and a smell of nylon coming out of it when it burns, the Food Safety Department of DM confirms to the public that all Foodstuff Establishments are under periodic inspections and samples are tested in the emirate to ensure it's compliant with the technical regulations, specifications and accredited laws and legislation. Some of the food products have a bad smell when burned although they're not nylon. Burning food products and sharing videos through social media continuously is not a scientific way to test them, as there are specialized laboratories made for testing food products and samples with accredited and scientific methods. The video that has been shared is by an inexperienced and not specialized person in food safety field. The aim of publishing such videos is either to ruin the reputation of the product and the manufacturing company or a commercial competition.
