Punjab bans Maggi for one year

0

The Punjab government has banned the sale of popular instant food in the state for one year after its samples failed laboratory tests.

The state government also imposed a ban on manufacturing and distribution of all nine variants of the instant noodles from Nestle’s Moga-located plant with immediate effect.

Punjab has now joined 12 states – Delhi, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Assam, Jammu and Kashmir, Tamil Nadu, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura – which have banned Maggi noodles amid mounting food safety fears.

The state government has also asked Nestle to recall Maggi noodles’ entire stock from the markets in the state.
