We strongly reiterate that MAGGI Noodles have always been safe for consumption as demonstrated by tests carried out in independent accredited laboratories, our own accredited laboratories (over 3500 samples have been tested) and by six (including USA, UK and Singapore) national food authorities. As per the directions of Hon’ble High Court of Mumbai, samples were tested at accredited laboratories and were found to be in order.
On 13 January, 2016, the Hon’ble Supreme Court directed the NABL accredited Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) to clarify if the results of sample tests on MAGGI Noodles show lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG) levels to be within permissible limits. The results were forwarded to the Supreme Court directly on April 11, which state that the 29 tested samples showed lead levels within permissible levels. It also clarified that that no prescribed level for MSG exists and it can be used under Good Manufacturing Practices in permitted food products.
