Maggi noodles made in India by Nestle India ltd is safe to eat, said Food Standards Agency (FSA) UK on Wednesday giving magi a clean cheat over safety issues.
UK’s food safety watchdog collected over 900 samples of Maggi noodles, including one variety imported from India to check the lead levels after the controversy in magi noodles created in India over monosodium glutamate (MSG) and high lead content.
However, the report showed the lead levels to be within permissible limits.
Not only this, a recent mail written to Bloomberg from Nestle also mentioned that Australian and New Zealand regulators have also cleared Maggi noodles.
Meanwhile, India’s food regulator is also investigating whether chocolate makers have been using vegetable fats instead of cocoa butter, Bloomberg TV India reported on Wednesday, citing unidentified officials. Indian food regulations prohibit that.
Last month, maggi noodles were withdrawn from the markets over the safety reasons after the Indian food safety body declared the instant noodle unsafe to eat.
But on Tuesday Bombay High Court allowed maggi noodles to export its Indian made maggi, however, the ban on selling and producing of all nine variants of magi in India is still banned.
Made-in-India Maggi noodles are imported by Singapore, Canada, the US, the UK and Australia.
