Congress defends Bollywood stars on Maggi issue

Amitabh, Madhuri, Preity

Jamshedpur: Congress today came out in support of Bollywood actors who have endorsed Nestle’s Maggi Noodles, saying that the celebrities had no knowledge of more than permissible lead content in the popular instant food.

Action should be taken against Madhuri Dixit, Amitabh Bachchan and Preity Zinta had they endorsed the Nestle product knowing the presence of more than permissible lead content and MSG in Maggi, AICC spokesman Ajoy Kumar said in a press conference here.

He said the actors lacked knowledge about presence of hazardous ingredients while endorsing the Nestle product.

Kumar said TV channels and news dailies are also liable for legal action on the basis of same logic for putting out misleading advertisements.
