Maggi noodles, a popular snack by Nestle India, has been in the news following a laboratory report that samples of the product contained more lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG) than the permissible limit. The Food Safety and Drug Administration (FSDA) has registered a case against Nestle in this matter. The government also warned that violation of standards will make even brand ambassadors liable. In the face of these developments, Nestle India has declared that it will lend support to celebrity endorsers who land in a soup following the Maggi noodles controversy.
