JAPAN: Nissin recalls noodles after consumer sickened
In the latest in a series of food scares involving pesticides in packaged goods, Nissin Food Products has issued a product recall after a customer fell sick from eating Nissin-branded Cup Noodle.
The Japanese firm has now voluntarily recalled about 500,000 noodle cups produced yesterday (23 October).
Tests detected the presence of the pesticide paradichlorobenzene.
Nissin denies that the Japanese factory where the noodles were produced could have been contaminated.
The company said it is continuing investigations into the possible source of the contamination.
