After Maggi, Ching\'s and Wai Wai noodles fail quality tests

The government declared it unsafe and banned it for a period of 30 days initially with immediate effect, the report added.

Assam government which earlier banned the Maggi noodles in the state has today announced a ban on Wai-Wai noodles for 30 days with immediate effect, following MSG content in the noodle.

According to an official release, the government issued a notification today under Section 30(2) (a) of Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, and prohibited the manufacture, storage, distribution and sale of Wai-Wai 1-2-3 Noodles (mini) and Wai-Wai mini Ready to eat Noodles by CG Foods.

The government declared it unsafe and banned it for a period of 30 days initially with immediate effect, it said.

"The samples of both the noodles have tested positive for monosodium glutamate, which is prohibited for use as additive in pastas and noodles as per Regulations 3.1.11.1 of Food Safety & Standards (Food Products Standard and Food Additives) Regulations, 2011," the release stated.

Meanwhile, three samples of Ching's Secret, one of the larger packaged foods in Chinese category were found to be sub-standard by the Indore's Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The state FDA has also initiated a prosecution against the manufacturer for selling products that were found with hazardous chemicals.

"We have taken three samples recently, which were first found mis-branded. We issued a notice to the manufacturer giving 30 days to get the test done at any other lab,” shared, Manish Swami, Food safety officer, FDA Indore.

According to Swami, the food samples contained sodium bi-carbonate and guar gum that are not allowed to use in noodles as per FSSAI norms.
