Maggi noodles are safe: UK agency News Today,2 july 2015

Mumbai: Maggi noodles are safe to eat, the UK’s Food Standards Agency said on Wednesday
The UK food regulator, which tested samples of the Indian-made instant noodles following the controversy in India, said a range of Maggi noodles tested by it was found to have permissible levels of lead.
Maggi noodles, manufactured by Nestle India Ltd, were withdrawn from shops in India and ordered incinerated after Indian tests found monosodium glutamate as well as higher-than-permissible levels of lead.
Nestle sells only the “masala flavour” Maggi in the UK. However, the FSA tested not only the “masala flavour”, but also others from the Maggi noodles range as a precaution, the regulator said on its website.
The UK is the second country after Singapore to clear Maggi noodles as safe to eat.
On Tuesday, the Bombay high court allowed Nestle to export its India-made Maggi noodles, instead of incinerating its entire stock of the ready-to-cook snack, as the company stood by its claim of the product being safe to consume. However, the ban on the sale and manufacture of all nine types of Maggi noodles continues in India.
 Made-in-India Maggi noodles are imported by Singapore, Canada, the US, the UK and Australia. Australia has temporarily suspended imports while the US Food and Drug Administration is testing samples of Maggi, according to an 11 June Reuters report.
