Canada says Nestle's Maggi noodles "safe"
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has said that it found "no health rise" associated with the consumption of Nestle's Maggi noodles.
The announcement follows an update from the UK's food safety watchdog that also concluded Maggi noodles manufactured in India were safe.
Nestle implemented a full scale recall in India and export markets when Indian food safety regulators said they detected elevated levels of lead in Maggi noodles. The company, however, maintained that its products were safe and its own testing found levels of lead within amounts permitted by regulations.
"The CFIA's food safety investigation did not find any health risk associated with the consumption of Maggi brand noodle products sold in Canada," the CFIA said. "The CFIA takes food safety concerns very seriously. We are continuing to monitor the situation in India and are working with our international regulatory partners. The CFIA will advise the Canadian public should any food safety risk be identified."
