"We are continuing to monitor the situation in India and working with our international regulatory partners," it added.

In June, Singapore's food regulator had also declared Maggi noodles from India as safe for consumption.

Maggi noodles were banned by India's food regulator on June 5 after a high amount of lead and chemical monosodium glutamate were found in it.


Nestle withdrew all varieties of Maggi noodles hours before the ban that ruled it 'unsafe and hazardous'.
