Maggi noodles has been in the thick of controversy after media reports on the alleged presence of harmful substances in the noodles. Several states across India have collected samples of the popular snack and sent it for testing. The Himachal Pradesh authorities have also collected samples of Maggi instant noodles on June 3, 2015, and sent them to a laboratory for testing. The officials have, however, yet to collect samples from the company's manufacturing plant in the state.

Director, Health, Rameshwar Sharma said, "Samples of Maggi noodles were collected randomly from across the state. A three-member committee has been deputed to conduct sampling at Nestle India's manufacturing plant in the state's Tahliwal area in Una district."

Additional Chief Secretary (health) Vineet Chawdhry said, "Samples were collected as per the communication received from the central government. The results of the tests on the samples are yet to come."

Food and Civil Supplies Minister G.S. Bali said, "Our department would also examine the samples of Maggi separately."
