Delhi Government Bans Sales Of Maggi Noodles From Stores

Published on 3 June, 2015 at 4:31 pm By

After Kerala, Delhi government has banned sales of Maggi noodles from its stores. The move comes after it found lead and monosodium glutamate present in the eatable beyond permissible limit, reports Times Of India.

Ten out of 13 samples tested for lead content in the popular food item were found to have amounts higher than permissible limits. Delhi health minister, Satyendar Jain, said:

“Last week, we lifted 13 samples of Maggi for testing following media reports of these being unsafe for consumption. We found the masala samples, tastemakers of at least 10 such packets, had lead content beyond the prescribed limit of 2.50pm. Also, five samples of masala were found containing monosodium glutamate (MSG) without proper label declaration.”

Further stating it as a case of misbranding, Satyendar Jain added that the government has decided to file a case against Nestle for selling unsafe products and fine it for misbranding Maggi noodles.



 

At least 10 Indian states have either ordered the withdrawal of Maggi noodles from shops or are testing noodle samples prior to taking action against the manufacturer, Nestle India Ltd.

 

Maggi sales have plunged in India since laboratory tests showed the noodles contained lead and the chemical flavor enhancer monosodium glutamate, or MSG, at levels higher than the legal maximum.
