Mumbai: Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit, who is in the midst of a controversy for endorsing Maggi noodles, met officials of Nestle and said they assured her that there would be no compromise on the quality of the popular snack which is under scanner.
The 48-year-old Bollywood actress was slapped with a notice by Haridwar Food and Drug Administration to explain within 15 days claims made in the advertisement regarding the nutrition value of the ‘2-minute noodles'.
“Like most of India, I have enjoyed Maggi noodles for years. I was very concerned after recent reports and met with the Nestle team,” she tweeted.
“Nestle explained that they always place the consumer first and have the highest quality standards,” another tweet said.
“Nestle has reassured me that they adhere to stringent testing for quality and safety and are working with the authorities closely,” she said.
Maggi recently came under the scanner after samples collected by Uttar Pradesh Food Safety and Drug Administration were reported to be containing Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and lead more than the permissible limits.
Nestle India was asked to withdraw a batch of the popular snack from the market by the authorities in Uttar Pradesh recently.
Disputing the claim, Nestle India had said, “The company does not agree with the order and is filing the requisite representations with the authorities.”
