Dhaka: Amidst the ongoing row over Maggi in India after reports revealed that they contained dangerous levels of lead and flavour enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG), Bangladesh gave Maggi clean chit on Tuesday. Bangladesh’s food testing authority has found no ingredients above harmful levels in five brands of noodles, including Nestle’s Maggi.
“We have tested noodles of five companies including Maggi,” Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institute (BSTI)’s certification wing director, Kamal Prasad Das said.
Many Indian states have stopped marketing of Maggi and subjected them to fresh tests after allegations that they contained dangerous levels of lead and flavour enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG).
Food safety inspectors in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh sued Nestle on Monday. FIRs have been ordered against Bollywood show stealer Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta for endorsing Maggi, earlier on Tuesday.
