Japan recalls noodles over scare
Instant noodles are hugely popular in Japan
Two large Japanese food manufacturers have found insecticide in their instant noodles, triggering a food scare.
First, Nissin - which invented the instant noodle - recalled 500,000 pots after a woman became ill. She had eaten from a cup containing insect repellent.
Now another Japanese food giant, Myojo, says it too has found the same substance in two of its own pots.
The incidents are the latest in a series of scares that have shaken the confidence of Japanese consumers.
Earlier this year ten people fell ill after eating dumplings imported from China.
The Japanese manufacturers are warning customers not to eat noodles with a strange smell or damaged packaging.
