FOOD SCARE IN INDIA

Nestle company, producer of Maggi instant noodles, sold batches of the noodles with high level of lead.

India’s government decided to file a case against Swiss multinational food and beverage company Nestle for false advertising.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) banned the product after finding a lead level above given limits: as a result, six states declared a temporary bans of the instant noodles.

Nestle stated that its product is “safe for consumption”, but it is not ready to comment on the filed case against the company.

Also the company announced a temporary pull from sale, until new test results are made.

India is deciding to file the case in front of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (a quasi-judicial commission) for compensation that can rise to Rs10 million.

Maggi noodles occupy 80% of the instant noodles market in India. Many celebrities endorsed the product over the years.
