Maggi withdraws all noodles in India after state bans and lead scare...

Food group Nestle is withdrawing all of its Maggi noodles from sale across India after a food scare erupted when some states banned the product for excess levels of lead.

Nestle said “an environment of confusion for consumers” had resulted from the bans and insisted the noodles were safe. But after coming under fire in local media for reacting too little and too late the group said it would recall the product regardless.

At least six Indian states have banned Maggi noodles after tests revealed some packets contained excess amounts of lead. On Thursday Tamil Nadu became the first state to ban several brands of instant noodles including Nestle’s.

“Unfortunately recent developments and unfounded concerns about the product have led to an environment of confusion for the consumer, to such an extent that we have decided to withdraw the product off the shelves, despite the product being safe,” Nestle said in a statement on Friday.

“The trust of our consumers and the safety of our products is our first priority.” Full story...
