Maggi instant noodles recalled after testing positive for salmonella

All Maggi instant noodles are being recalled by Nestlé Philippines after two batches of the beef-flavored Maggi Rich Mami Noodles were found to have traces of salmonella after a routine quality test.

The company said it is recalling all of its Maggi instant noodles, including the chicken-flavored instant noodles, from all production batches, as a precautionary measure.

The initial findings suggest that the flavoring ingredients that come with the instant noodles in sachet may have caused the salmonella contamination, Nestlé said.

Nestlé explained that the product is safe to eat if the cooking instructions are followed.

But that doesn’t account for cross-contamination during preparation.
