  • Bihar court files FIR against Amitabh, Preity & Madhuri
  • “I did check with Nestle, who make the product, whether this is all right and if they are sure… I even put a clause in my contract where I said that I hope you people defend me, legally, if something happens. I don’t endorse it now because my contract is over,” Amitabh 
  • “Like most of India, I have enjoyed Maggi noodles for years. I was very concerned after recent reports and met with the Nestle team. Nestle explained that they always place the consumer first and have the highest quality standards.Nestle has reassured me that they adhere to stringent testing for quality and safety and are working with the authorities closely,” Madhuri Dixit   

Amid the controversy over the alleged violation of food safety standards by instant noodles brand, Maggi, India’s Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on said all players, including Bollywood actors who have endorsed the product, are liable for action under the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) norms.

Three Bollywood actors — Madhuri Dixit, Amitabh Bachchan and Preity Zinta — have endorsed the product in the past few years.

The FSSAI has decided to test more samples of Maggi, collected from different States, in the wake of the Uttar Pradesh Food and Drug Administration finding excess levels of lead and mono-sodium glutamate, normally used as a flavour enhancer, in the product.
