Maggi NOT banned or recalled, says Nestle India statement on Facebook

maggi noodles
Fans of instant noodles brand Maggi, marketed by Nestle India, were furious when reports emerged a few days ago that the product has been recalled by inspectors of the Food Safety and Drug Administration (FDA) for excessive lead content. But Maggi’s official Facebook page says: “MAGGI is neither banned nor is there any order to recall the product being sold in the market.” Here is the full statement of the company:
“Dear MAGGI Fans,There have been conversations on social media regarding the recall of your favourite MAGGI Noodles. We fully understand your concerns and would want to assure you that MAGGI is neither banned nor is there any order to recall the product being sold in the market. We would also want to reassure you that MAGGI contains no added MSG and routine tests have consistently shown that lead levels in MAGGI are within the regulatory limits. Quality and safety of our products is topmost priority for us and you can continue to enjoy your MAGGI Noodles without being concerned.”
Earlier, D G Srivastava, deputy inspector general of FDA Lucknow had alleged, ”Maggi instant noodles contained dangerous amount of lead and MSG. We had to immediately issue orders against the company.” A batch of Maggi Noodles were recalled from shops across the country, according to Srivastava. The FDA inspectors found lead concentration of 17.2 parts per million (ppm), which was almost seven times the permissible limit! The FDA also found high levels of added monosodium glutamate or MSG.
Nestle had issued an official statement then too, saying, “We do not add MSG to Maggi Noodles, and glutamate, if present, may come from naturally occurring sources. We are surprised with the content supposedly found in the sample as we monitor the lead content regularly as a part of the regulatory requirements.”
But the anti-Maggi buzz on social media did not die out soon, and so Maggi also posted a message on Facebook, explaining its side. The question is: How many people would believe what Maggi and Nestle India are saying? Would you?
