Madhuri Dixit slapped with FDA notice for endorsing Maggi NoodlesMay 30, 2015 NR
Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit has been served a notice by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for endorsing Maggi noodles, an official said on Friday.
The film actress is seen endorsing the two-minute noodle as a healthy food for children in a television commercial.
The FDA in Uttar Pradesh had sought recall of a March 2014 batch Maggi packets after tests revealed dangerous-level of zinc and breach of the allowed limits of monosodium glutamate in it.
The actress has been asked to give in writing her promotion of the brand and its nutrients within a fortnight, failing which a case would be filed against her.
Food Security official Mahimanand Joshi informed that in case the actress failed to furnish the information sought by the department, action would be initiated against her as per law.
