FDA in UP had claimed levels of lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG) in a batch of ready-to-cook noodles were high, following which the set was recalled from the market in the state.

"We have collected samples of the product from different parts of the state such as Pune, Nagpur and Mumbai and have sent them to our laboratory for tests," Dr Harshdeep Kamble, state FDA commissioner, told reporters in Mumbai.

"The results will come in a few days, after which we will decide if there is a need to take action," the senior IAS official said.
