India-made Maggi found safe in Singapore

ae4audnfA week after the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) had informed importers to withhold sales, it informed local importers that the sale of Maggi noodles from India may be resumed after safety tests in Singapore found that the popular instant snack does not pose any health risk to consumers.

According to a report AVA also tested Maggi instant noodles produced in other countries and results reveal they met the food safety requirements as well.

In India the popular brand was temporarily banned after excessive levels of lead were found in samples tested in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

The Switzerland based food group Nestle said though its noodles are completely safe it had decided to take the products off the shelves, but the noodles will make a comeback as soon as the current situation is clarified.
