Analysis:

The story spreading through Facebook claims to show an instance where a consumer finds Insects, Bacteria and Fungus formation in a pack of Yippee Noodles he purchased from a shop and warns users not to eat the noodles because of the low quality. The claims as such are mixture of hoax and facts.

About the Incident

On 16 November 2015, Vangala Shivakumar living in Hyderabad city of India, posted the story in question along with few pictures of the pack of Yippee noodles (Magic Masala version) showing they are infected with bacteria, fungus and insects. The story garnered thousands of shares on Facebook and soon got wide attention because Yippee noodles has been a popular brand in India, especially after the ban of Maggi noodles over concerns of excess lead content.

Yippee Noodles Company’s Response

Shivakumar contacted ITC Limited, the manufacturing company of Yippee noodles, through phone and email complaining about the damaged product, following which the company responded that they will get back to him on the issue. Not happy with the damaged product and not satisfied with the company’s response, Shivakumar called Yippee Noodles a low quality product and requested consumers not to eat them and spoil their health. On 24 November 2015, when My Health Tips Facebook page shared the same complaint story of Vangala Shivakumar, official Facebook page of Sunfeast Yippee Company replied with their response to the incident:

The company said they re-checked packs from the same batch code as the one in question and found them to be compliant with their stringent safety standards. The Yippee noodles product bought by Shivakumar is packed on 6 October 2015 with a shelf life of 9 months and was found to be damaged and fungus ridden in less than 2 months. So like the company suggested, it is possible that the product was spoilt due to physical damage like wear and tear of the packet, or because of unhealthy preservation/storage of the product during or after its transportation into the shop. One such instance of damaged product does not mean that Yippee noodles manufacturing is low in quality and that people should avoid eating them.

In general, fast food products that deteriorate with time are actually good, in the sense that they may not be chemically abused with preservatives. For example, a McDonald’s burger bought in Utah in 1999 did not rot and spoil even after 14 years. Consuming such fast food laden with chemicals is actually dangerous. As a matter of safety, before buying and also consuming, users need to check the edible products to see if they are in good condition are not.

Hoax or Fact:

Mixture of Hoax and Facts.
