Maggi is safe to eat : UK Food Standards Agency

maggiFood Standards Agency (FSA) on Wednesday gave a clean chit to Nestle for Maggi manufactured in India saying levels of lead in the product are well within the EU permissible levels.

Following an incident in India, where a sample of Maggi Noodles was reported to contain high levels of lead, the Food Standards Agency made the decision to test a selection of Maggi Noodles as a precaution. FSA has also asked Nestle to provide it with test results from its own samples. All showed levels of lead to be well within EU permissible levels.

Maggi noodles were banned in India by food safety regulator FSSAI over presence of lead beyond permissible limits and taste enhancer monosodium glutamate.
