Uncertainty Over Noodle Safety


Health authorities are still conducting tests on noodle products following the deaths of five children.

Very little is known of the brand the children had consumed, or what other factors could have led to their deaths after eating the noodles.

The popularity of the instant noodle products amongst children has parents concerned.

South Africans have meanwhile been urged to practice good food hygiene, which includes how and where these products are stored.

Last week, two Mpumalanga siblings died moments after sharing a packet of noodles, just a week after a similar incident that claimed the lives of three children was reported in the Eastern Cape.

The Health Department’s Foster Mohale says that they are working closely with stakeholders to determine the extent of the problem.
