Eid illuminations

It’s interesting that the biggest fresh local produce market in the UAE Souq Al Jubail is holding a two-day festival to celebrate Eid Al Fitr. And thus the market has been tastefully decorated with bunting with Eid themed illustrations on them (“Two-day Eid festival at Souq Al Jubail,” June 25, The Gulf Today).

It has been reported that UAE’s traditional music and folk dances like Al Ayyalla and Al Harbiyya will be organised to entertain visitors. There will be interactive workshops and fun activities for children such as face painting, balloon benders, a fire show etc.

Director of Souq Al Jubail Ali Ali Suwaidi has invited everyone, especially families with children, to the Special Eid Spectacle to make their Eid celebration a truly memorable occasion.

Take heed

We the inhabitants of the United Arab Emirates should take heed of the warnings issued by the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment in regard to the products manufactured by Bulletproof 360, Inc. (“Ministry cautions UAE consumers against eating Collagen Protein Bars and Bites,” June 25, The Gulf Today).

The Ministry is closely following the food recall warning on FDA’s website with regard to Bulletproof 360, Inc. recalling five Collagen Protein Bar and Bite products, because it is alleged that they might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which is pathogenic bacteria that causes a serious infection called listeriosis.

Reportedly, the affected products were distributed between April 7 and June 12 in US retail stores and on and sent to customers in different countries, including the UAE.

Therefore, the Ministry has rightly urged UAE consumers not to eat any Collagen Protein Bars or Bites that are meant to be recalled now.

It’s reassuring to know that the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment strictly monitors all food products in the UAE whether they are locally produced or imported to ensure they are safe to consume.

All the citizens and residents of the UAE should follow the instructions of the Ministry and do away with any Collagen Protein Bars or Bites they have with them.
