Delhi bans sale; Centre files complaint against Nestle, Maggi taken off Army’s menu

New Delhi: The Delhi government on Wednesday banned Maggi noodles in the nation’s capital for 15 days and ordered that existing stocks be withdrawn, while the Indian Army, perhaps the biggest single bulk consumer of the instant noodle brand, issued an advisory asking soldiers and other personnel not to consume Maggi noodles.

The military canteens were directed to suspend sale of existing stocks until further orders. The Delhi government will also carry out lab testing of all other noodle brands available in the city, and then take action based on these reports.

The Future Group, the country’s biggest retailer, also stopped Maggi sales at its Big Bazaar outlets. The Centre has also filed a complaint against Indian unit of Swiss multinational Nestle.
