I bought a beef noodles this morning and I was looking for Maggi Rich Mami Noodles. I was a little unlucky cause Maggi brand was not available. I chose another brand and went home.
Maggi unavailability turn out to be a lucky moment. Maggi Noodles Chicken and Beef flavors of Nestle Corporation were recalled due to Salmonella contamination. Hmm.. a dry good with Salmonella – a rare case.
Nestle management immediately recalled all the contaminated batch to prevent possible dangers. Reports stated that some customers already bought the contaminated product. No report of Salmonella infection yet. I hope no one is infected and no one will be infected.
Anyone should refrain from eating Maggi Noodles with batch number starting with 11020 and 11030. Those are found with traces of Salmonella – an infectious bacteria causing fever, stomach ache, diarrhea, dizziness and vomiting that last up to seven days – by Nestle Quality Assurance Team.
Philippine Food and Drug Administration will subject other Nestle products under laboratory test to ensure public safety. Hmm.. !!.
Anyone should not worry about eating noodles with Salmonella. It can be easily eliminated by heat. However, there are some individuals with a habit of eating raw noodles – like me. I much some noodle pieces like a snack. Another mode of transfer is holding the noodles and flavor with bare hands or transferring them to other vessel before cooking. Ouch! We should still be worried!
I always emphasize this: Minimum of ten Salmonella bacteria are enough to make someone sick. One Salmonella might replicate to reach more than this number and will be more than enough to make you seriously ill.
