PATNA:  While Maggi is planning for a relaunch in the market, the Bihar Government has taken a stern action against eleven other brands of noodles in the state by immediately banning their sale in the state.

“All of them have been banned for the presence of MSG, the same reason for which Maggi was banned” said food safety commissioner cum health secretary, Anand Kishor. “According to Food Safety Standards Act, MSG is not permitted in such products. Further, none of these products mentioned the presence of MSG on their packs” he added.

The samples of these products were collected from different districts across the state in June after Maggi was banned and  were sent to Delhi-based FICCI Research and Analysis Centre. The lab gave adverse reports on these products.

Hindustan Unilever Limited’s ‘Knorr mast masala soupy noodles’, Capital Foods Pvt Ltd’s ‘Ching’s Manchurian instant noodles’, ‘Ching’s Secret Veg Hakka Noodles’, Glaxo Smithkline Consumer Healthcare Limited’s ‘Foodles Multigrain Ala Masala Noodles’, Nissan’s ‘Top Raman Super Noodles’, ‘Top Raman Curry Noodles’, ‘Veggie Manchow’, ‘Top Ramon Curry Veg Noodles’, ‘Sunfeast Yipee Noodles Magic Masala’ and ‘Sunfeast Yipee Noodles Classic Masala’.

The samples of these products were collected from different parts of the state in the month of June.
