Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit seems to have landed in a soup for endorsing Maggi. The Haridwar Food and Drug Administration (FDA) served the actress a notice on the claims made in the advertisement.

The notice seeks a report from her within 15 days on claims made in the advertisement regarding the nutrition value of the ‘2-minute noodles’, an official of Haridwar FDA said.

Maggi recently came under the scanner after samples collected by the Uttar Pradesh FDA were reported to be containing Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and lead more than the permissible limits.

Here’s the commercial in which Madhuri Dixit claims that Maggi is a healthy breakfast.

Nestle India was asked to withdraw a batch of the popular snack from the market by the authorities in Uttar Pradesh recently.

Dixit has been asked to explain how Maggi is good for health and the basis of making the claims.

If the actress fails to respond to the notice within the stipulated time frame, a case could be registered against her, Food Security Officer Mahimanand Joshi said.
