South Korea, through its embassy here, has asked the Philippines to lift its ban on imported Nongshim noodles, saying they do not contain dangerous amounts of the carcinogen benzopyrene.

 

Sunstar.com.ph reports the South Korean embassy has pointed at tests conducted by the Korea Food and Drug Administration that found "the level of benzopyrene found in the noodle powder, which ranges from 0.4 to 1.6 ppb, was extremely low and has no harmful effect on the human body."

 

The Philippines has banned the importation and sale of Nongshim Big Bowl Noodle Shrimp, Nongshim Negori noodles, Nongshim Saengsaeng Udon Bowl Noodle, and Nongshim Saengsaeng Udon for containing benzopyrene. South Korea said other countries have already lifted bans "as the six noodle brands proved to be totally unharmful to the human body."
