Australia rejects import of Maggi noodles from India

The Department of Agriculture will inspect and test consignments for the presence of lead and compliance with Standard 1.4.1 of the Code.

Australia has temporarily rejected import of Maggi noodles from India under food safety concerns, reported PTI.

The Department of Agriculture, Australian government has issued a "holding order" against Maggi as a precautionary measure on June 11.

"This is a precautionary measure in response to reports of levels of lead that are potentially non-compliant with the permissible levels in the Australia- New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code)," mentioned, Australian Department of Agriculture.

This would apply to all Maggi noodles imported to Australia from India, it said.

"Under the holding order, each consignment will be held in a place to be approved by an authorised officer until it has been inspected, or inspected and analysed, in accordance with the applicable requirements of the Imported Food Inspection Scheme," the notice added.

The Department of Agriculture "will inspect and test consignments for the presence of lead and compliance with Standard 1.4.1 of the Code".

Maggi has also come on the radar of US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) which has taken samples of the instant noodles brand for testing.

As per Nestle's global website, Nestle India currently exports small quantities of Maggi noodles to the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Singapore and Kenya.
