More than the celebrities advertising for Maggie the departments passing that to match the food safety standards are responsible.— Adv. Somnath Bharti (@attorneybharti) June 2, 2015

Thrz no point in filing cases on those who endorse the brand, better scrutinize the products #Maggi— Nandish S K (@nandileo) June 3, 2015
First beef. Then Maggie. Now eggs. This is a huge conspiracy. Government is indirectly trying to convert everyone into Jains.— ???? (@FaaduTweets) June 1, 2015
Man, I have so many cool memories about Maggi. I still remember Harbhajan telling Symonds, "Teri Maggi".— Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) June 2, 2015

Might be a conspiracy by other Noodle Brands because Maggi is a Market Lead-er— Joy (@Joydas) June 2, 2015
When did Preity Zinta even endorse Maggi? Was there a product placement in Ishkq in Paris, because that's the only way I could've missed it.— Akshar (@AksharPathak) June 2, 2015
