NAFDAC set to investigate as Malaysia, Taiwan recall Indomie noodles over cancer-causing substance

The decision by Malaysia and Taiwan to recall Indomie’s “special chicken” flavour noodles has raised some concerns about the safety of the food globally, including in Nigeria.

The development followed the detection of ethylene oxide, a substance known to cause cancer, in the product by the health institutions in the two countries.

Nigeria has also reacted to the development as the agency in charge of standards has set in motion plans to conduct fresh independent tests on the concerned products.

Efforts are currently in place by The country’s National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to investigate the new claim.
