Reliance Retail pulls all noodle products off its shelves across nation

Reliance Retail Limited, one of the largest retailer in the country, on Friday announced that it has temporarily withdrawn all instant noodle products from its shelves across the country.

All the noodles have been returned to the distribution centres and labelled “Not For Sale”.

Designated Food Safety Officers have been informed of the action.

The company, in its official communique here, said it runs 2,621 stores in the country across 200 towns.

“This unprecedented step of going beyond a piece-meal approach is based on three basic commitments, including health and well-being of our customers and our unflinching commitment to stock only products of the highest assurance, enlightened interest of our 11 partner companies whose products we stock, and to remain in 100 per cent compliance of legal and regulatory processes across the country irrespective of individual jurisdictions,” said the company’s  statement.

“We believe the uncertainty is unwarranted and undeserved. But it merits the launch of a robust, nationwide process of reassuring ourselves and our valued stakeholders,” said Damodar Mall, CEO, Value Formats & Consumer Business, Reliance Retail.

In Tamil Nadu, a memorandum on action taken is being presented to the Commissioner of Food Safety, and other relevant authorities are being requested to share findings from their laboratories, it said.
