Maggi muddle: US FDA testing Maggi noodles after India scare

After coming on hot stove in India, Maggi is now under scanner in the US market.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is testing samples of Nestle instant noodle, a spokeswoman for the Swiss food group informed.

Nestle, one of the world's largest food company, is seeking to defend its reputation in India after it pulled Maggi instant noodles from stores following reports by state regulators that some packets contained excess lead.

"We have been made aware that the FDA has taken samples of Maggi noodles manufactured in India from third-party importers' containers for testing, and we have asked the importers to advise us of the outcome of the FDA tests," the spokeswoman said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

The FDA was not immediately available for comment.

Nestle does not import, market or distribute Maggi noodles in the United States, the spokeswoman said. Any Maggi noodle products in US stores are sourced by retailers or imported through third parties, added the lady.

In a separate statement, Nestle India said it had lodged a judicial review with the Bombay High Court over an order from India's Food and Drug Administration, effectively seeking to clarify the state's method of testing the noodles.
