Cockroach Pieces Found in Japanese Instant Noodles

A consumer has recently posted a photo online of Maruka’s peyoung brand instant noodles with what seemed like pieces of an insect in it. Maruka Foods Corp, a Japanese food company manufacturing instant noodles, have ceased sales and have shut down two of their factories after cockroach pieces have been found in one of their packages, reported The Wall Street Journal.

Nissin Foods Holding Co. also had a similar case where customers called and complained about finding foreign objects and pieces of a cockroach in the tomato cream flavored frozen pasta.

Both the Japanese food companies have pulled their products from the store shelves and offered a refund to customers who send in any of the peyoung brand noodles.
