Noodles Brand Probed Over Child Deaths

The National Consumer Commission is investigating the supplier of Howe Instant Noodles to determine if the company supplied food that is unsafe for consumption.

The probe follows reports that three children died in the Eastern Cape after allegedly eating Howe noodles.

Grandisync, a company based in Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape is the supplier of this brand of instant noodles.

The Consumer Commission says it suspects Grandisync supplied unsafe goods or goods that posed a potential risk to the public.

The Commission is also still awaiting laboratory results on the noodles.

If found guilty, the supplier’s case could be referred to the National Consumer Tribunal, which may impose a fine.
