On the basis of a sample analysis report on Wai-Wai mimi ready-to-eat noodles and Wai-Wai 1-2-3 mini noodles issued by the Assam food analyst, the samples were declared unsafe under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, as these contained monosodium glutamate, which is prohibited from use in dried pastas and noodles.

The state's commissioner of food safety issued prohibition notification on June 15 against CG Foods, prohibiting the manufacture, storage, distribution and sale of the products in the state for a period of 30 days. Authorities also served an improvement notice to CG Foods, Industrial Growth Center, Chaygaon.

After necessary improvement steps were taken, the samples of Wai-Wai mimi ready-to-eat noodles and Wai-Wai 1-2-3 mini noodles were sent for further analysis to the Assam government's food analyst. The state food analyst then declared that the samples conformed to the prescribed standards. Following this, the ban on the products was lifted.
