She said, “There is no ban by NAFDAC. The ban was made by the federal government many years ago even before my time to encourage local manufacturing approved by NAFDAC.
“There is no ban related to noodles or to the noodles in Taiwan and Malaysia. The locally manufactured noodles are safe. However, science is not static but dynamic.
“After the incident in Taiwan, we went into precautionary measures, examining and testing the noodles and other products for ethylene oxide and making sure there is no infiltration or smuggling into the country.”
