Amitabh Bachchan on Wednesday said he has not received any notice over endorsing Maggi, and added that he has stopped doing advertisements for the product around two years ago.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Wednesday said he has not received any notice over endorsing Maggi, and added that he has stopped doing advertisements for the product around two years ago.

“I had stopped endorsing Maggi two years ago. I have not received any notice till now. As soon as I get it, I shall put it up to my lawyers. We will fully cooperate,” Amitabh Bachchan said.

Actors Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta have also been dragged for promoting the ‘two-minute’ noodles brand.

A case was lodged earlier against Nestle India by the UP food regulator FSDA in a local court at Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh over safety standards of its Maggi.

Union Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Ram Vilas Paswan has said that the government is framing new law to deal with Maggi-like cases.

Citing the case of Maggi noodles that contained high level of lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG), he said that stringent legal provision would be applied.

Paswan also said that no leniency would be shown against those indulging in manufacture and promotion of sale of life-saving items and harmful food products.
