One of the Bollywood queens, Madhuri Dixit seems to have landed in a soup for endorsing Maggi, with the Haridwar Food and Drug Administration sending a notice on Friday to her on the claims made in the advertisement.
As per the notice, the actress should provide them with a report within 15 days on claims made in the advertisement regarding the nutrition value of the ‘2-minute noodles’, an official of Haridwar Food and Drug Administration said. Maggi recently came under the scanner after samples collected by Uttar Pradesh Food Safety and Drug Administration were reported to be containing Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and lead more than the permissible limits.
Nestle India was asked to withdraw a batch of the popular snack from the market by the authorities in Uttar Pradesh recently. Being asked to explain about how Maggi is good for health, she also needs to clarify the basis of making the claims. If the actress fails to respond to the notice within the stipulated time frame, a case could be registered against her, Food Security Officer Mahimanand Joshi said.
