Lipton tea safe in UAE: Abu Dhabi
YouTube rumours allege hallucination pills in the company's products.

The Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) has confirmed the safety of Lipton tea products in the emirate of Abu Dhabi markets.
This follows rumours on YouTube, alleging the existence of hallucination pills in the company's products.

Mohammed Jalal Al Raisi, Director, Communication and Community Service, ADFCA, said the inspectors conducted a comprehensive survey on tea sales in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and the Western Region retail outlets. Physical examination showed no impurities or hallucination pills in different tested teabags, he said.

Al Raisi said all the samples that have been tested in the outlets are produced by the UAE. With regard to the imported shipments, he noted that the last shipment came from Lebanon, and was tested safe before being displayed in the markets of the emirate.
