1NEWS – The Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has detained several ships transporting instant noodles from Indonesia.

The refusal was because the level of pesticide residue in instant noodles was above the threshold.

Not only from Indonesia, several instant noodle products from the Philippines and Japan were also rejected.

Customs also refused to enter 56.96 kilograms of instant noodles packaged in Acecook cups from Japan, which were imported by another Taiwanese company, Zhong Xin International Development Co.

Given the large number of shipments of instant noodles contaminated with residue from Indonesia, the FDA said that customs officials would increase the percentage of inspection samples for imported food from Indonesia from 5 to 10 percent to around 20 percent.
