NAFDAC stated this in a release on their website on Friday, September 18.

The release said:

“The National Agency
for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) hereby brings to
the attention of the general public that some Maggi noodle produced by
Nestle India contained excess lead and were therefore deemed unsafe and
hazardous for human consumption.

Nestle has recalled its Maggi instant noodles from stores across
India following the report by the Indian Food Safety Regulators of
probable lead contamination. Lead exposure causes an estimated 143,000
deaths a year worldwide.

In view of the potential safety concerns on consumption of the lead
contaminated Maggi instant noodles, NAFDAC warns that Maggi instant
noodles produced by Nestle India should not be consumed.

Departmental stores, Wholesalers and retailers should also be
proactive in ensuring that such products are brought to NAFDAC if they
come across any, and under no circumstances should such products be
sold.”
