African supermarket pulls Maggi noodles

East Africa's biggest supermarket chain has withdrawn Nestle's Maggi noodle brand from its shops in five countries, amid concerns over food safety.

Nakumatt says the noodles have been withdrawn from shops in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and South Sudan, after demands from a Kenyan consumer group.

The group was reacting to a partial ban in India, where regulators described the product as "unsafe and hazardous".

Nestle maintains that Maggi noodles are completely safe.

The Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek), which launched the complaint, is now pushing for other supermarkets to remove the noodles from their shelves. Full story...
