Chandigarh: Amid a row over Maggi noodles allegedly failing to meet food safety standards, the Haryana government on Wednesday said there have been no negative reports about the samples tested so far.

"The tests conducted on Maggi and masala (tastemaker) samples by Haryana Food and Drugs Administration Department showed that added MSG is negative and lead content within permissible limits," Director General of National Health Mission, Haryana, S Narayanan said in Chandigarh. The department had collected 134 samples of the popular instant food and tastemaker from across the state. Lead and arsenic levels in Maggi noodles samples tested in Bengaluru are within the permissible limits while there is no clarity on Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), a Karnataka food safety standards official on Wednesday.

"There is no issue about the products (Maggi samples) analysed in the state," said H. Shiva Kumar, joint director, food safety and standards, Karnataka. However, there is confusion over MSG. "There is no clarity on Glutamic acid...The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has not instructed us to test for Glutamic acid," added Kumar.
