Nestle says Maggi noodles are safe; creates online hub for test-related queries

Our Bureau New Delhi | Updated on January 24, 2018


The Maggi noodle saga continues as reports emerged stating that Uttarakhand has decided to ban the product after the Delhi Government had served a 15-day ban on Wednesday and several retailers pulled it off their shelves across the country.

Meanwhile, besides using social media networks to take on concerns about Maggi, Nestle India has also created an online hub for queries regarding lab test results, lead in Maggi and other related issues.

On the issue of Delhi ban, Nestle India said, “On June 3, 2015, the Delhi authorities made a press announcement that a 15-day ban would be imposed on Maggi Noodles and that Nestlé would be served with a notice to recall the product from retail outlets in the State. We are yet to receive an official notification on this from the authorities. We are currently engaging with different authorities in India, both at federal and state levels, to clarify the situation.”

Nestle India continues to maintain that Maggi noodles are safe to eat. “Yes. We are confident that our Maggi noodle products in India and elsewhere are absolutely safe for consumption,” it has said on its Web site.

The company had earlier said that it has undertaken internal and external tests of 12.5 crore packets that confirm that Maggi noodles are safe and the lead levels are within the food safety limits specified by the Indian authorities.
