AIZAWL: Mizoram joint director (Food and Drugs Administration) of the state health department Lalsawma today said officials were conducting verification of the recalling process of "Maggi" noodles on a daily basis.        

"Our officials have found that those (Maggi noodles packets) dispatched to the remote villages were taken back by the company," Lalsawma told PTI.         

He said officials were also sent to Assam to seek permission for using the Assam Public Health Laboratory for testing the Maggi instant noodle samples from Mizoram, which does not have its own food testing laboratory.   

He hoped that Mizoram would soon be able to send samples of Maggi noodles and other food items to the Assam Public Health Laboratory for testing.           

"The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) had instructed the Nestle company on Friday last to stop manufacturing of Maggi instant noodles and recall all the stocks," Lalsawma said.

 FSSAI had asked all state governments to test samples of Maggi in their respective states and send the results to it after which a concrete decision would be taken, he added.
