Qatar Says Its Indomie Noodles Are Safe Following Global Ban

According to authorities, “the selling of noodles" has been prohibited in certain countries due to health concerns that are not being sold in the Gulf nation.

According to the health ministry in Qatar, the two brands of instant noodles that were recalled globally due to high levels of ethylene oxide are not available in Qatar. The brands in question are Indomie: Special Chicken Flavour from Indonesia and Ah Lai White Curry Noodle from Malaysia, and they have been prohibited in other countries worldwide.

Last week, health authorities in Taipei found ethylene oxide, a cancer-causing chemical associated with lymphoma and leukemia, in the Indomie and Ah Lai White Curry instant noodle brands from Indonesia.

It was discovered that the seasoning packets of the Indomie chicken special variant contained the chemical. Nonetheless, the health ministry of Qatar has taken extra preventative steps to ensure the safety of consumers in the nation.

The measures taken by Qatar's health ministry to guarantee the safety of consumers include mandating outlets to attach an analysis certificate that verifies the lack of ethylene oxide in any delivery of instant noodles, irrespective of their source. Additionally, the ministry has declared its intent to monitor the situation continually and make changes to these procedures as required.
