Samples of Maggi noddles were today found “unsafe” for consumption in the national capital prompting Delhi government to contemplate action against its manufacturer Nestle India.

A senior official in the Delhi government said the Maggi samples were found unsafe during lab testing.

Sources said the city government was contemplating various options on the issue.

The probe into alleged lapses of food safety standards has already been expanded to test Maggi noodle samples from across the country following detection of monosodium glutamate and lead in excess of the prescribed limit in the noodles.

However, Nestle India claimed it has got samples tested in an external laboratory as well as in-house and that the product was found “safe to eat”.

Earlier, the Kerala government had ordered pullout of Maggi noodles from its retail outlets while samples of the product in Haryana were lifted for testing even as a Bihar court ordered that an FIR be filed against its brand ambassadors Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta.

    The issue of higher lead content in Maggie and Monosodium glutamate is a matter of gigantic proportions. Maggie is a favourite food of young and old and if the company has been cheating its loyal consumers, the matter should attract the attention of our PM. a mere press conference by Consumer affairs minister will not suffice. The edia is not giving the facts too. How many samples were checked? Which laboratory conducted the check? What was the percentage of higher lead content? Why is the Ministry of food Processing and Punjab Government sleeping.Maggi is located in Moga in Punjab. Has the production of this deadly poisonous food product been halted. I may be wrong but it appears to be a staged drama to extract money from the firm. This Swiss firm is known for its ethics in refusing to bribe. And now some food Inspectors who are the most corrupt people want to take revenge.
