UK FSA finds made in India Maggi safe to eat
UK’s food regulator Food Standards Agency (FSA) on Wednesday gave a clean chit to Nestle for Maggi manufactured in India saying levels of lead in the product are well within the EU permissible levels. “The FSA can confirm that results from testing samples of Maggi Noodles in the UK have all found that levels of lead in the product is well within EU permissible levels and would not be a concern to consumers,” FSA said in statement.
It further said: “Following an incident in India, where a sample of Maggi Noodles was reported to contain high levels of lead, the Food Standards Agency made the decision to test a selection of Maggi Noodles as a precaution. In India, this incident has resulted in a <g data-gr-id="9">large scale</g> withdrawal of the product.” Nestle informed FSA that the only variety of Maggi Noodles they import into the UK from India is the ‘masala flavour’.
