Remember Maggi Noodles tagline – Taste bhi, health bhi? Well, it appears that it isn’t true anymore. Food inspectors have ordered Nestle India to recall a batch of Maggi packets from shops across the country, saying the product contained dangerous levels of lead, reports Reuters.
“Our experts conducted several tests and each time the results were shocking. Maggi instant noodles contained dangerous amounts of lead and MSG. We had to immediately issue orders against the company.”
“We do not add MSG to Maggi Noodles, and glutamate, if present, may come from naturally occurring sources. We are surprised with the content supposedly found in the sample as we monitor the lead content regularly as a part of the regulatory requirements.”
