A sudden spike in reports of unsafe and gross substances in packaged food items, ranging from high permissible levels of lead to live larvae, has raised concerns about food safety in India.

Over the past week, authorities banned nine variants of Maggi on finding high levels of lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG) and Nestle recalled the popular noodles from the Indian market.

As the Maggi issue rages on, a flurry of reports have come in from across the country, including those about consumers finding dead worms in Complan and live larvae in Nestle milk powder.
