Singapore, Nepal stop sale of Maggi

Singapore and Nepal authorities have temporarily suspended the sale of Nestle’s Maggi noodles imported from India amid reports that high lead content was found in the popular instant snack.

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority’( AVA) decision comes after India banned the sale of the noodles for 15 days in Gujarat, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Tamil Nadu after high levels of lead were discovered in batches tested in New Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

As a precautionary measure, the AVA has taken samples of the instant noodles for food safety tests and advised affected importers to withhold sales until tests are completed.
