Good Luck.
India has banned one of world's best selling brands of instant noodles. The noodles are brand Maggi, produced by Swiss food giant Nestlé. Health authorities in Indian state of Uttar Pradesh found noodles contained too much lead. India's Food and Drug Administration reported that noodles had seven times more lead than legal limit. They also had too much monosodium glutamate - chemical that brings out taste of noodles. News agencies say Delhi is preparing to take legal action against Nestlé because of sales of unsafe product. They also say Delhi is upset that Nestlé "misbranded" noodles by telling people they were healthy when they were not.

Indian Army has also stepped in and advised its soldiers and support staff not to eat Maggi noodles. Army officials have asked its canteens not to sell any more Maggi noodles until further notice. Colleges and roadside cafes are also to stop selling Maggi noodles. Millions of Indians will have to go without their favourite snack until Nestlé changes its recipe. Indian government does not want people exposed to health risk from lead in noodles. health expert from Associated Press news agency said: "Excessive intake of lead can cause damage to kidneys, bones and nervous system. It is particularly harmful to children and can cause learning disorders."
