Following reports of a cancer-causing chemical found in Indomie noodles, Nigeria’s National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has launched an investigation.

Health officials in Malaysia and Taiwan had detected ethylene oxide, a compound used to sterilise medical devices and spices, in Indomie’s “special chicken” flavour noodles.

NAFDAC’s director-general, Mojisola Adeyeye, stated that the agency would begin random sample tests of the noodles and other brands from May 2nd.

She confirmed that the product is on the prohibition list of the federal government, is not registered by NAFDAC, and had been banned from importation to Nigeria years ago.

NAFDAC is working to ensure that the product is not being smuggled and that the feedback from the investigations would be communicated to the public.

Meanwhile, Indofood, makers of Indomie noodles, has said the product was safe for consumption and received standard certifications and was produced in compliance with international food safety regulations.

Nigeria is currently among the largest consumers of instant noodles, with Indomie instant noodles being the most consumed brand in Nigeria.
