Mizoram sends Maggi noodles samples to Assam for testing

AIZAWL: According to a senior state health department official, Mizoram government has sent samples of Maggi instant noodles from the state to the Assam Public Health Laboratory in Guwahati.

Joint Director (Food and Drugs Administration) Lalsawma told that the samples were sent on Wednesday as Mizoram does not have testing facilities to determine food safety.

Lalsawma said that the laboratory would send its report and findings to the Mizoram health department which would be submitted to the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI).

Earlier, Mizoram's four authorized distributors of Maggi instant noodles were recalling the products from different retailers and outlets across the state.

Lalsawma added that the recalling process progressed well but recalling all the products from all the remote villages took time.
