Baba Ramdev's 'Patanjali Noodles' is in trouble again.

First, it was not being able to obtain the mandatory product approval from the Food Safety and Regulatory Authority of India (FSSAI), and now a customer in Haryana has founds bugs inside a packet of Patanjali Noodles.

According to reports, the bugs were spotted inside the sealed pack by a man who purchased it from Swadeshi store in Narwana, in the Jind region of Haryana.

The customer is now reportedly gearing up to file a lawsuit against Patanjali noodles.

Soon after the launch of Patanjali, it had come under the scanner of government where FSSAI had said that Ramdev did not get approval for Patanjali Noodles but packets displayed the license number.

Apparently, FSSAI had given approval for Patanjali's pasta brand. "We have licence for Pasta in central category from FSSAI. As per FSSAI, noodles come under the 'pasta' category. FSSAI has given us licence for relabeling in the pasta category," Patanjali said in a statement.
