Dubai restaurants requiring waivers for takeout meals

Source of Article:

From the Dubai-stories-that-don’t-have-to-do-with-real-estate-files: A number of Dubai restaurants are forcing patrons to sign disclaimer notes for takeout orders. Following the deaths of two five- and seven- year old children from food poisoning caused by a takeout meal, litigation-fearing Dubai restaurants now require patrons to sign legal releases for takeout meals.

The children, whose parents are both foreign citizens (the father from India, the mother from France), have received massive media attention in Dubai. The legal waivers also require patrons to register their personal details:

“Please note that the Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates takes no responsibility whatsoever for any food or beverage bought from the hotel or any outlets of the hotel for personal consumption.

“This is due to the fact that the Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates has no more control or any way of ascertaining the safety and hygienic condition of this food and beverage once outside the premises. Please sign the waiver below to indicate your acceptance of the terms stipulated.

“Otherwise the hotel is unable to permit any food or beverage to be purchased,” the disclaimer reads.

The name, address, contact details of customers along with the time of the purchase are also noted down on the waiver note.
