The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) has warned consumers to steer clear of some Indomie noodles packs which have been recalled from the market.
The Comesa Competition Commission (CCC) disclosed this information, detailing why the noodles were recalled from the Egyptian market on Tuesday.
The commission revealed that tests carried out on the products by the Food and Safety Authority (FSA) of Egypt came out positive, revealing the presence of aflatoxins and pesticide residues in high quantities beyond safe limits.
After the findings came out positive, the affected indomie products: Indomie chicken flavoured instant noodles, and the indomie vegetable flavoured instant noodles, were recalled from the market by the supplier.
FSA has said that prior to this, the noodles were generally safe for consumption, and the general public have been warned to be careful not to consume the affected products.
Information has it that some of the recalled products have made it to other member states, and are being sold to unsuspecting consumers, which has prompted Comesa’s warning.
