Nestle India's Maggi, after been declared unfit by FSSCI, has come under the scanner of international regulators in US, UK and Canada.
Nestle India’s Maggi Noodles are now under the scanner of international regulators. After the Singapore food regulator gave a clean chit to Maggi Noodles, other foreign food regulators including those from US, UK and Canada have started testing samples of Maggi Noodles.
Sources told CNBC-TV18 that total of six states in the US including Delaware, North Carolina, New York, Wisconsin, Colorado and California have started tests on Maggi samples.
Meanwhile, Nestle has not only opened up doors to the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSCI) that has termed Maggi as unsafe and hazardous, but are working on an internal investigation plan in the Maggi issue.
The company is working on two key priorities. One is to check the root cause of the problem and second is to iron out issues with the government. The internal investigation will be done across all the five rural manufacturing facilities.
Testing of Maggi sample is happening at nine international and three external labs, said the sources.
