Big Bazaar on Wednesday took Maggi noodles off its shelves, a day after the Delhi government found samples of the instant noodles unsafe for consumption.
“In the interest of consumer sentiment and concerns, we have taken Maggi noodles off the shelves from all our stores for the time being. We will wait for more clarity from authorities to take any further course of action,” a Future Group spokesperson said.
However, Nestle India claimed it has got samples tested in an external laboratory as well as in-house and that the product was found “safe to eat”.
Nestle India further said today that it has not received any order from the central or any state FDA authority for recall of its Maggi noodles as the controversy over safety issues deepened.
“We have not received any official communication from the authorities so far,” the company said in a BSE filing.
