Food and Drug Administration Declares Maggi Noodles Safe For Consumption In Goa

Maggi noodles samples collected in Goa for series of laboratory tests have not shown any traces of the flavor enhancer MSG and lead, said a senior Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) official.

FDA deputy director Jyoti Sardesai said that tests conducted on Maggi products, both at the local production unit and retail stores, showed that monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead levels were within accepted limits.


"Both MSG (monosodium glutamate) and lead levels were within limits when we conducted the tests," said Sardesai.

She said that following the nationwide controversy over consumption of Maggi noodles, the department had conducted a series of tests, which did not show violation of food laws.

She also said that Maggi noodle samples were drawn from the Nestle manufacturing unit at Bicholim sub-district in North Goa as well as from five randomly chosen retail stores for the tests.
