Nestlé has sent out a public notice confirming the safety of Maggi Noodles following fresh tests done on the product.
100 per cent of the samples sent from newly manufactured stocks tested by three laboratories have been cleared.
In a statement, Nestlé stated, “We have received results from all three NABL (National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories) accredited laboratories mandated by the Hon’ble Bombay High Court to test newly manufactured Maggi Noodles samples. All the samples of the Maggi Noodles Masala have been cleared with lead much below permissible limits.”
Nestlé India has conducted over 3500 tests representing over 200 million packs in both national as well as international accredited laboratories for testing and all reports are clear. In addition to these, various countries including USA, UK, Singapore, Australia and others have found Maggi Noodles exported from India safe for consumption.
Now that the Orders of the Bombay High Court have been complied with, Nestlé will aim to commence the sale of Maggi Noodles Masala within November, as well as continue engaging with States where permissions are needed or specific directions may be necessary.
“We are presently manufacturing Maggi Noodles at three of our locations, at Nanjangud (Karnataka), Moga (Punjab) and Bicholim (Goa) and for the other two locations at Tahliwal and Pantnagar, we are engaging with the relevant authorities in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand to obtain directions for commencing manufacture of Maggi Noodles,” The press note claimed.
