While Maggi noodles may be safe, the last thing they are is healthywhich is why the new Maggi Mom ads are so ridiculous
Ever since Maggi Noodles re-entered the market last week, they’ve been flying off the shelves. I went to five different stores—mega, big, medium and small—only to find that stocks had run out within a day. I’m glad for Nestle, because thanks to the government ban on Maggi Noodles for supposedly having lead beyond statutory limits, the company has not only made massive losses, it had to destroy 400 million packets of Maggi products. In a land where there is so much paucity of food, any wastage or destruction of food is ludicrous. But the government wanted what the government wanted. Either way, fresh tests which were asked for by the Bombay high court in August found all 90 samples of the noodles, covering six varieties, safe for consumption with “lead well below permissible limits", according to a statement released by Nestle.
