Egypt Withdraws ‘Unsafe’ Indomie From Markets

Written By John Mutiso 📝

The Egyptian Food Safety Authority announced that 733,340 cartons of different Indomie product flavors have been withdrawn from the market.

The manufacturing company was given an ultimatum of 48 hours to withdraw its non-conforming products.

The authority added, in a statement, that the owner company was still continuing to withdraw its products that do not comply with food safety requirements, in addition to offering instant noodles without chili bags. 

The authority submitted that it will apply an effective system on food producers to track the process of food manufacturing during all its stages, until it reaches the consumer at various outlets.

Further, the authority proceeded to stress that this procedure will be carried out almost on a daily basis in order to ensure the health of the consumer and the reputation of the producingcompany is well taken care of.

The Country confirmed cautions taken to stop dealing with the company producing the flavors until corrective measures are taken to ensure that the product is free of contaminants and pathogens.

This will remove the claim written on the product packages regarding the benefits of vitamin B and mineral salts of iron, zinc and calcium.

The company responded immediately by withdrawing 733,340 cartons of different Indomie flavors as well as offering instant noodles without chili bags and without the claim mentioned on the packages about vitamin and mineral content.
