UAE supermarkets selling cheap fish labelled as hammour



DUBAI // Supermarkets and restaurants across the UAE are breaching food labelling laws by selling cheap fish and labelling it as hammour, municipality officials say.

Outlets also are bulking up frozen fish with ice to boost its weight, the officials said.

“The product has to match the label,” said Bashir Yousef, a Dubai Municipality food-safety expert. “If not, it is illegal because the product name should indicate what is in the food and what it’s all about.”

In June this year, a shopper realised that the kilogram of frozen hammour he bought from a Dubai supermarket was nothing of the sort.

Not only did his fish weigh in at only 500 grams, but the species was Pangasius, a type of catfish imported from Vietnam that costs a fifth of the price of hammour.

On a visit to food outlets in Dubai, J?V, a fish expert and manager of a seafood-processing company, found many outlets were flouting the law.

The Fish & Chips Room in Dubai Marina offered“battered hammour” and chips. J?V said the fish was the much cheaper Nile perch.

“The fish is in batter so you can’t see much, but once opened you can see its flakes breaking up easily,” he said. “Hammour has stronger flakes.”

After tasting the fish J?V said: “This is definitely Nile perch. The colour is supposed to be more pinkish red, whereas this is white.”

The price displayed for 200 grams was Dh38 – too low for hammour.

“There’s no way this is hammour,” J?V said. “The price should be higher because what’s displayed here is the price of the raw material hammour.”

Hammour usually costs about Dh50 a kilo in supermarkets, while cheaper species can be as little as Dh10 a kilo.

But the manager of the Fish & Chips Room insisted it was hammour.

“It is actually hammour locally bought,” said Joseph Gerreyn. “It’s labelled hammour when I buy it from my supplier, I’m 100 per cent sure.”

But others admitted to switching species. At the Lebanese restaurant Beiutna, 180 grams of a “hammour fillet” meal with chips cost Dh60.

Again, he said, the fish was not hammour.

“It’s too long to be hammour,” said JV. “The texture is too soft and the colour is too white. It even has a different taste. This is cream dory, which should cost Dh25.”

The manager, Hashem Jaramani, admitted it was cream dory.

“All restaurants do this because you cannot always get hammour on the market,” Mr Jaramani said. “I’ve been doing this for 12 years. If I write cream dory on the menu, Arabic people won’t understand what it is.”

Mr Jaramani offered a refund, but Mr Yousef, of the municipality, said that was not good enough.

“If a customer wants to buy hammour, he will pay premium money for it, so it’s obviously illegal to mislabel it,” he said. “You are cheating the customer if there is any discrepancy in the ingredient list.”

Mr Yousef said consumers who encountered any mislabelling of food should complain to the municipality or the Department of Economic Development.

“Fish usually needs to be verified but if it’s the case, we will take action against the establishment,” he said. “It’s the basic right of the consumer to complain of the very nature of the product and sometimes, people have something that they can’t [discern].”

He said the municipality would fine any food outlet found to be responsible for mislabelling a product.

“But we would have to run further investigations to find out if the violation was intentional or not,” Mr Yousef said.

He said that if the owner was found to be fraudulently selling a product, the outlet could be closed down or the owner could be taken to court.

To complain about food mislabelling, consumers can call the Dubai Municipality on 800900.

Kanye West

Ye — the rapper formerly known as Kanye West — has seen his net worth fall to $400 million in recent weeks. That’s a precipitous drop from Bloomberg’s estimates of $6.8 billion at the end of 2021.
Ye’s wealth plunged after business partners, including Adidas, severed ties with him on the back of anti-Semitic remarks earlier this year.
West’s present net worth derives from cash, his music, real estate and a stake in former wife Kim Kardashian’s shapewear firm, Skims.

From Europe to the Middle East, economic success brings wealth - and lifestyle diseases

A rise in obesity figures and the need for more public spending is a familiar trend in the developing world as western lifestyles are adopted.

One in five deaths around the world is now caused by bad diet, with obesity the fastest growing global risk. A high body mass index is also the top cause of metabolic diseases relating to death and disability in Kuwait, Qatar and Oman – and second on the list in Bahrain.

In Britain, heart disease, lung cancer and Alzheimer’s remain among the leading causes of death, and people there are spending more time suffering from health problems.

The UK is expected to spend $421.4 billion on healthcare by 2040, up from $239.3 billion in 2014.

And development assistance for health is talking about the financial aid given to governments to support social, environmental development of developing countries.

Aayan’s records

Youngest UAE men’s cricketer
When he debuted against Bangladesh aged 16 years and 314 days, he became the youngest ever to play for the men’s senior team. He broke the record set by his World Cup squad-mate, Alishan Sharafu, of 17 years and 44 days.

Youngest wicket-taker
After taking the wicket of Bangladesh’s Litton Das on debut in Dubai, Aayan became the youngest male cricketer to take a wicket against a Full Member nation in a T20 international.

Youngest in T20 World Cup history?
Aayan does not turn 17 until November 15 – which is two days after the T20 World Cup final at the MCG. If he does play in the competition, he will be its youngest ever player. Pakistan’s Mohammed Amir, who was 17 years and 55 days when he played in 2009, currently holds the record.
