Oreo recall in Dubai due to translation error

Oreo Cookies have alcohol, the rumours suggested.

The Dubai Municipality has responded to the circulating rumours that Oreo Cookies sold in UAE markets allegedly contain a small amount of alcohol.

Dubai Municipality denied the rumour on social media, stating that the product in the market is ‘halal’ and alcohol free.

It explained that there was a mistake translating the food ingredients into Arabic. The word ‘chocolate liquor’ was literally translated to alcohol, on the other hand, it should have been translated to cocoa paste, the municipality added.

The product will be withdrawn from all stores in the coming two days to prevent confusion among consumers.
