Testing by the National Measurement Institute in Australia has confirmed that Maggi noodles imported from India are completely safe to eat.
Testing showed that levels of lead were well within the acceptable limits set by the regulator, Food Standards Australia and New Zealand.
Indian-made Maggi noodles sold in Australia are imported by a third party distributor, not by Nestlé Australia, and are generally sold through specialist Indian grocery channels.
However, as Nestlé Australia stands by the quality and safety of our products, wherever they are made, the company commissioned local testing in addition to the extensive testing conducted.
Nestlé Australia will share these test results with Australian food authorities.
Maggi Noodles sold through general retail are imported by Nestlé Australia from Malaysia.
