Another blow for Maggi as Walmart India takes the noodle off shelves
"We have withdrawn the Maggi two-minute noodles from our shelves across all 20 Best Price Modern Wholesale stores till further clarity from FSSAI and state food safety authorities," said Walmart India vice president Rajneesh Kumar.
He said the recall was because of Walmart's policy that required all their suppliers to have valid Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) licenses.
"We have been in constant touch with our vendor partner Nestle, who we understand are working very closely with the authorities regarding sampling of Maggi two-minute noodles," he said.
Other retail chains like Big Bazaar and Kendriya Bhandar have also withdrawn Maggi noodles from their stores.
