The Goa Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) has collected four more samples of packed instant noodles for testing, revealed an official statement. In all, more than a dozen noodle brands are under FDA's scanner, ever since the controversy surrounding the lead and MSG content in Nestle's Maggi instant noodles broke out nationwide earlier this month.

The agency said, "Today, FDA food safety officers have drawn additional four samples of noodles and one wafer crisp chocolate products which includes Indo Nissin, Top Ramen, Super Noodles and Wai Wai brand."

After initially giving a go-ahead to Nestle's Maggi, Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar, on June 7, 2015, banned the product after the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), a central government agency, said that the tests conducted by the Goa FDA were not appropriate.

Since then, the Goa FDA has collected as many as 37 packed food samples, including packed noodles, and are in the process of conducting tests.
