New delhi, India (BST)-The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has denied ordering recall of any batch of Maggi noodles.

The Central food safety regulator said that it is waiting to examine the initial report from the state enforcement agencies in Uttar Pradesh which found the product containing added monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in excess of the permissible limit, reports The Times Of India.

“We have not yet ordered any recall. We are waiting to see the report from UP and may order countrywide sampling after that,” a senior official in the FSSAI told TOI.

When contacted, Nestle spokesperson also confirmed that the company has not received any communication from the regulator seeking countrywide recall.
