After Maggi, UP FDA finds excess lead in Yippee noodles

The FDA said that the samples of Yippee noodles, seized from a local mall here, have been found to contain lead “far in excess to the permissible limit”.

After Maggi, Food and Drug Authority (FDA) has found excess lead in ITC's Yippee noodles and will soon file a case.

The FDA said that the samples of Yippee noodles, seized from a local mall here, have been found to contain lead “far in excess to the permissible limit”.

Chandan Pandey, Head of  Department FDA, Aligarh Division said “The laboratory report for these samples, which were received here yesterday, indicated that the lead content which should have been below 1 ppm was found to be 1.057 ppm”.

FDA authorities had seized 8 samples of different food products from a local mall on 21st June including the sample of Yippee noodles. These samples were sent to the state laboratory at Lucknow and Meerut for testing, Pandey added.

The excessive lead content can cause serious harm, particularly to children; he said that a report has been sent to the FDA Chief Commissioner for permission before filing an official case.

The process is expected to take a few weeks, he added.

The troubles for Nestle India over ‘excess’ lead content in its Maggi noodles had also begun in UP first, while food regulators in other parts of the country and the central body FSSAI also later passed orders against the company.
