Salmonella Found in Maggi Noodles; FDA To Inspect Other Noodle Products

Nestle Philippines found a possible salmonella contamination in their Maggi beef and chicken noodles and therefore decided to recall its product in all dealers and supermarkets nationwide.

The Company also stopped production of all Maggi noodles pending the completion of the investigation.

Nestle said in an ad published in a newspaper that "the product recall is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety and quality of our products."

"We have immediately initiated an extensive investigation to determine the cause of this contamination, and initial findings suggest flavoring ingredients as the cause," it added.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are requested to contact the company's hotlines 898-0061 (for Metro Manila) or 1-800-100-637853 (toll free for provincial areas).

Meanwhile, the salmonella scare prompted the Philippine Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to schedule inspection and testing of other noodle products being produced by other manufacturing companies.

FDA Director Suzette Lazo said her office will send inspectorate teams to different noodle manufacturing companies to monitor their brands of noodles to ensure that these are safe for consumption.
