Time for celebration! Maggi to make a comeback; authorities say it’s safe to eat
This puts an end to Nestle’s Maggi controversy.
FSSAI-approved laboratory of Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) has found Nestle’s Maggi safe to eat. The samples of Maggi tested are in compliance with the country’s food safety standards.
“CFTRI finding shows that samples are in compliance with the food safety standards as per the Food Safety and Standards Rules, 2011,” Goa FDA director Salim A Veljee told Times of India.
Earlier in June five Maggi samples sent by Goa Food and Drug Administration (FDA) were tested and found containing impermissible levels of lead and MSG. Maggi instant noodle was then banned in Uttar Pradesh and other states due to failing in the food safety standards.
Later in June, Maggi was taken off the shelves and was only sold in black and at higher rates by some of the storekeepers who still had a few packets of Maggi with them.
FSSAI had asked Maggi to a submit compliance report on the levels of MSG in the product.
Nestle India’s new chief Suresh Narayanan was determined to bring Maggi back for its fans through a conciliatory note with authorities.
