FDA warns – 3,600 packets of Maggi 2-Minute Noodles in 280g, 560g recalled due to undeclared peanut

Milpitas, California-based New India Bazar has recalled 2,400 packets of Maggi 2-Minute Noodles, 280g, and 1,200 packets of Maggie 2-Minute Noodles, 560g, due to the potential presence of peanut, a major allergen not listed on the product’s ingredient list.

Individuals who live with an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts are warned that they could undergo a major, life-threatening allergic reaction from consuming the products.

Announced by the company on December 1, 2023, the recall affects packages of Maggi 2-Minute Noodles that were distributed and made available for purchase in the following six (6) area stores, listed by location and phone number:

As pictured in the FDA announcement, Maggi 2-Minute Noodles come in a yellow plastic pouch and are available in 280-gram and 560-gram packaging. Affected 280-gram packages bear an expiration date of December 2023, and affected 560-gram packages are printed with a January 2024 expiration date. The recall covers products under lot codes 31159939CA and 4354M56.

Officials took action after learning that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that does not declare the allergen as an ingredient.

While the company has not received any reports of illness in connection to the problem, anyone who may have purchased an affected Maggie 2-Minute Noodles package is encouraged to take it back to the point of purchase to receive a total refund.

Further questions and concerns may be directed to the company at (408) 942-1770, Monday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
