I've just seen maggi super noodles have been found to contain lead, and been withdrawn in India. My dc have eaten some today and yesterday. I'm sick with worry, can anyone advise how to find out anything conclusive. Please.

If you Google it says this was back in June and the UK ones are fine.

If in doubt Google smile

I would be sick just because I had eaten maggi noodles, yabu just eating them.

Are you in India? Otherwise I don't think they will have been made in the same place, but I will stand corrected.

Yes YABU to worry. Worrying will not answer your questions. It will not reduce the risk. It will not make you feel better about the situation. Worrying is entirely pointless and distracts you from actuay doing anything useful. Which is contact the customer helpline and ask maggi directly.

Maggi noodles sold in the UK were given the all clear back in July OP. Article from The Grocer

There is absolutely no need to worry about your DCs.

The problem is that the ones in India contain some lead and some people there eat an awful lot of them - I think it's a bit of a cheap and easy food sold all over the place.

Are you in India? If not, you're being ridiculous.

Seriously, think about it, if they were dangerous Maggi would have stopped making them months ago.

It was the 2 minute instant ones (like a pot noodle without the pot) not the super noodle ones that require to be cooked in a pot. They have said only the ones sold in India were found to contain lead and the UK tests came back ok so your DC will be fine.

The 2 minute ones are rank anyway, mine went in the bin after 1 mouthful

They're made by Nestle so the harm that may have come to you is small scale compared to what it will do to others!
