COMESA Warns Kenyans Against Consuming Some Indomie Flavors

The COMESA Competition Commission (CCC) has told consumers to avoid eating some chicken and vegetable-flavored instant noodles known as Indomie that were withdrawn from the Egyptian market on Tuesday.

“The Commission, through its market observatory, has established that some of the recalled Indomie products are imported and marketed in other member states of the common market. The commission would like to therefore alert the general public of the risks in consuming above Indomie instant noodles as established by the FSA and to exercise caution in the consumption of the same,” the CCC said.

According to tests conducted by Egypt's Food and Safety Authority (FSA), Indomie's chilli, chicken, and vegetable flavour packages had aflatoxins and pesticide residues in numbers that were above permissible limits,

The supplier has withdrawn 733,340 cartons of various Indomie flavours from the Egyptian market due to the findings.

Apart from those three products, the FSA determined Indomie noodles to be generally safe for human consumption.

The product recall comes just three weeks after the FDA urged customers not to eat Kinder Joy chocolates recalled from European and American markets due to rising worries that they may contain salmonella bacteria.
