East Africa's Biggest Supermarket Chain Withdraws Nestle's Maggi Noodles

Following a ban on Maggi noodles in India, East Africa's biggest supermarket chain Nakumatt has withdrawn Nestle's Maggi noodle brand from its shops in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and South Sudan. This came after the demands from a Kenyan consumer group over food safety after regulators in India described the product as unsafe and hazardous for human consumption.

However, Nestle still maintains that their products are absolutely safe. Maggi noodles are very famous in Kenya and are widely used in West African cuisine. According to the reports, Kenya's Bureau of Standards, the official government watchdog for product standards, has also issued a verbal recall for the noodles.
