The Delhi government banned the sale of Nestle’s Maggi noodles at all government run shops on Wednesday.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain told a news agency, “Maggi has been banned in Delhi for 15 days. Have directed that samples be taken from all brands available in the market.”

According to media reports, the Future Group, which runs the Big Bazaar retail stores across the nation, also banned its sale after the controversy regarding high levels of MSG and lead in the product surfaced.

Jain also shared the data revealing the details of the tests conducted to check the levels of contaminated content of Maggi via Twitter.

 

Nestle India, which manufactures the noodles, contradicted the report and after conducting an independent test, said the presence of lead was within permissible limits.

    BENGALURU: Nestle India is in more trouble as samples of Maggi Noodles collected by India’s Food and Drug Administration (FDI) from parts of Delhi reported high level of lead content in laboratory tests.
    The new report intensifies the FDI’s claim that Maggi Noodles is unsafe for consumption. It has raised concern in other states that still HAVEN’T banned the product.
    The Delhi government was quick to reprimand Nestle for selling an unsafe product that is largely consumed by youngsters. Government authorities also confirmed that the lab report has revealed that Maggi samples were ‘unsafe’.
