MUMBAI: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who landed into a soup for an earlier association with Maggi noodles, says he does not endorse the product anymore.

Talking about the controversy surrounding the two-minute noodles, he told IANS: "I have read in the media of this and till date have not been served any notice. If it comes, my lawyers shall be consulted and we shall cooperate with the system and follow the law of the land."

"I do not endorse Maggi now. I had stopped almost two years ago. My services to Nestle as per my contract are finished and over."

Maggi noodles, a popular snack from the Nestle India 'kitchen', has been in the news following a lab report that samples of the product contained more lead than the permissible limit.

Other Bollywood celebrities like Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta have also landed into legal trouble for endorsing Maggi noodles.

A case has been registered against Nestle India in a local court in Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh by food regulator FSDA (Food Safety and Drug Administration), after they found monosodium glutamate or MSG and lead in excess of the prescribed limit in Maggi samples they tested. 

In the capital itself, Maggi was banned for 15 days starting Wednesday.
