Maggi noodles ordered off India’s shelves due to lead level
At least 10 Indian states have either ordered the withdrawal of the Maggi noodles from shops.
Several of Indian states ordered a popular brand of instant noodles removed from shelves after tests revealed the snack contained lead above permissible levels.
At least 10 Indian states have either ordered the withdrawal of the Maggi noodles from shops or ordered the testing of noodle samples, prior to taking action against its maker, Nestle India Limited.
Maggi sales have plunged since laboratory tests showed the noodles contained lead and the chemical flavor enhancer monosodium glutamate, or MSG, at levels higher than the legal minimum.
The Delhi government has decided to file a case against the company and was Wednesday meeting officials of Nestle India, a subsidiary of Swiss-based Nestle SA.
In a statement, Nestle India said the noodles were safe to eat and lead levels were well within limits.
