Nestle India's Maggi Noodles Meets the Local Food Safety Standards in Singapore

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) had taken samples of India-manufactured Maggi instant noodles for testing. This came after India's food safety regulator said, "Laboratory tests found overwhelming evidence that Nestle India's Maggi instant noodle products are unsafe and hazardous for human consumption." However, an official statement released by the AVA on June 8, 2015, revealed that Maggi noodles has met local food safety standards and do not pose a risk to consumer.

Nestle India earlier announced a recall of its Maggi noodles across India. Singapore does not import Maggi brand oat products produced in India, which were the noodles cited to contain excess lead and high levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG).


AVA had told Singapore importers of India-manufactured Maggi noodles to withhold sales of the products temporarily, while it did laboratory tests. AVA stressed that it regularly collects samples of imported food products, including Maggi instant noodles and oat products, to ensure compliance with safety standards.

An AVA spokesperson said, "Our sampling tests cover a wide range of hazards known to be associated with food. Food products that fail our tests will not be allowed for sale."
