Madhya Pradesh bans Maggi noodles

Bhopal, June 5 (IANS) The Madhya Pradesh government on Friday banned the sale of Nestle’s Maggi noodles in the state after a report on a sample of the popular snack suggested the presence of monosodium glutamate, a flavour enhancer.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan told mediapersons that the report on the Maggi noodles sample showed the presence of monosodium glutamate. It is due to this report that the government banned the snack until there is more clarity on the issue.
