Low Sodium Kikkoman ‘soy sauce’ withdrawn from UAE markets due to alcohol content

Laboratory tests show alcohol content in the US-made soy sauce

Dubai: The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) is withdrawing US-made Low-Sodium Kikkoman ‘soy sauce’ product from UAE markets due to its alcohol content.

The decision followed the results of the specialized and accredited laboratory tests.

“In coordination with the concerned authorities, the ministry has received notifications of alcohol content in the US-made Kikkoman Soy Sauce and urges consumers to dispose of the product if they have purchased it,” the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

Imports prohibited

The withdrawal follows a similar decision in August 8 when the ministry issued a warning on Tuesday prohibiting the imports of regular Japanese Kikkoman soy sauce due to its alcohol content.

The ministry at the time banned the circulation of the product in the UAE market in accordance with Ministerial Resolution No. (539) of 2012 on the Standard Guide to the Procedures for the Prohibition of Handling and Banning of Food. 

The decision came based on the results of tests conducted by specialised accredited laboratories, which confirmed that several samples of the product with different production dates violated the rules.
