The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) informed local importers sale of the brand's noodles from India may be resumed, media reported.

The AVA had last week advised importers to withhold sales while it conducted laboratory tests, following concerns over higher-than-permissible levels of lead in the product.

Results from AVA's laboratory tests, which cover 'a wide range of hazards associated with food' showed the India-made Maggi instant noodles meets local food safety standards, the report added.

The authorities also tested Maggi instant noodles produced in other countries and results revealed these meet the food safety requirements too, the report mentioned.

Food products that fail tests will not be allowed for sale, the AVA had earlier said. Singapore has imported a small amount of the brand's noodles manufactured in India.
