UP Lab Finds Maggi Pasta Unsafe

New Delhi; Nov 28: Nestle's pasta is the second product after Maggi noodles to land in trouble after its samples, tested at a Uttar Pradesh laboratory, were found to have lead beyond the permissible limits, a state government official said on Friday.

An officer at the Food and Drug Administration, said that after Maggi, the sample of macroni pasta was taken from Mau and sent to the National Food Analysis Laboratory in Lucknow.

He said that the samples contained 6 PPM, which is much more than the permissible limit, that can't exceed the standard limit of 2.5 parts per million (PPM).

Nestle India said its products are safe for consumption and that it was not aware of any test done on pasta brands by the Uttar Pradesh lab.

"We are not aware of any analysis reports for Pazzta supposedly picked up from Sriji Traders," said a Nestle India spokesperson.
