It's been about a month since Maggi was banned all over India by the FSSAI for excessive lead content and mis-labelling. Manufacturers Nestle India themselves pulled out and destroyed a sizeable amount of the instant noodles from the market and vowed to return after sorting the issue. Following this, the popular snack came under the scanner in a number of countries, with Singapore, Nepal and UK imposing bans on the product imported from India.
Now, as the dust settles in, it appears that Maggi noodles is edible at least to other countries. It all began with the Bombay High Court, on 30 June, allowing Nestle India to export Maggi noodles after the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) said it had no objection to the company selling the product abroad. This was followed by Singapore's food regulator declaring Maggi noodles from India as safe for consumption.
Eventually other countries such as United Kingdom and Canada, declared Maggi safe for consumption. Currently, reports suggest that about seven countries have given the brand an all clear, leading to a revival of hope both for the brand and its fans.
Here's an infographic detailing all the countries you can safely eat Maggi in while the India ban is on.
