Nestle is clearly in soup over Maggi issue now.
The Centre today filed a complaint before the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) under the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act.
This is the first such case in over 30 years.
Union Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan described violation of food safety standards in Maggi noodles “serious issue”,
He told reporters that the NCDRC will also investigate the matter and take appropriate action.
“We cannot say at this point of time, what exact action NCDRC will take,” he said.
Paswan also said that rising fast food consumption may have health risk.
“In cities like Mumbai, 25 per cent of people do not eat at home. With rise in consumption of fast food items, there is also risk of health. Maggi is eaten maximum by children,” he added.
