The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) said the results of the lab tests of the Jordanian watermelon samples, which were taken on May 10 from a commercial complex, proved that they are in conformity with standards and specifications and they are safe for human consumption.
The ministry's authorities took samples of Jordanian watermelons after a video clip emerged on social media sites showing a customer using an electronic device to measure the contamination of a watermelon.
Following this, samples of Jordanian watermelons were sent to the central laboratory to ascertain their conformity with standards and specifications and ensure that they are fit for human consumption.
The Ministry of Municipality and Environment has called on all consumers to resort to the competent municipal authorities when they have any inquiries or complaints about the safety of foodstuffs, and not take information from unreliable sources.
