Nestlé will likely bring its popular brand of instant noodles back to Indian shelves within the next three weeks following a five-month ban, the company said Wednesday.
Nestlé India said in a statement that all samples of Maggi Noodles tested by three government-approved laboratories have been cleared and approved for consumption.
“We will make our best endeavor to commence the sale of Maggi Noodles within this month,” the company said.
Maggi, which makes up 80% of India’s instant-noodles market and is practically a staple among the South Asian nation’s younger population, was banned in June for allegedly containing dangerously high amounts of lead.
However, all samples have now reportedly “been cleared with lead much below permissible levels.”
