The West Bengal government has sent samples of Maggi noodles and some other food items for laboratory testing on June 3, 2015. These samples would be examined at the industrial testing laboratory National Test House. The test results are expected in the next few days. Several other states in India have also sent Maggi instant noodles for testing for higher-than-permissible levels of monosodium glutamate and lead in the popular snack. Some major departmental stores across the country have taken this food product off their shelves.

Consumers Affairs Department Minister Sadhan Pandey said, "From my department, I have sent a couple of products, including Maggi, for testing. If there is a need, we will test the products at other laboratories also. I will show the report to the chief minister (Mamata Banerjee), and then we will take action." Pandey said that his government would act in a way so as to protect consumers' health as also provide a fair deal to companies.
