Splicing tape on flavor packet
Posted by Mrs. V on 12/15/2010
GARDENA, CALIFORNIA -- I decided to have my favorite lunch today. Top Ramen – Oriental Flavor by Nissin Foods.

When I opened the package I noticed that the flavor packet had red tape on it that stated, “'This Is Splicing Tape” with the Nissin name and logo on it.

I called the Nissin Food Company, number 323-321-6453, and asked to speak to Consumer Affairs as per their website, http://www.nissinfoods.com/company/contactus.php.

I spoke to Ann and she explained to me that this tape is used to bind the packets together for cutting and packaging and that the ones that had the tape on them were suppose to be discarded.

But that the spices in the flavor packet were safe to consume and that the packets were only discarded for aesthetic reasons.

She apologized and said that she would send some coupons for the inconvenience which I thought was very nice of her.

I just wanted to let people know what the red splicing tape was in case someone else happens upon the same situation.

The Ramen was wonderful for lunch, by the way ^_^

Good info, Mrs V! My brother used to eat Ramen straight from the package (uncooked) with the seasoning sprinkled on top of it. He claims it's still one of his favorite snacks.

I love Ramen. I always add a whole lot of stuff to it ^_^

My favs are sliced hard boiled eggs, baked fish and/or chicken, mushrooms, sprouts, corn, cabbage.

nissin rocks!!

i have always found if i call a manufacturer, for a complaint or compliment, they always reward me with something. it is nice to hear there is still 'service' in their customer service.

very helpful.

When I make ramen, I drain the water, add butter and half the sauce packet. That's good eating

I tried some Ramen Noodles once. Then I checked the sodium content: "There are 1,960 milligrams of sodium in one serving of ramen noodles, which represents 82 percent of the recommended daily requirement of salt." I'm sure that some of the flavors are less and maybe some more, but I ain't eatin that.
Haven't touched them since.

I opened up a Nissin Souper Noodle Bowl, and I saw the tape around the flavor packet. Thanks so much! You saved my late breakfast :)

I found one with tape, what the heck I though to myself. Thanks for clearing that up. Also, to the guy with the sodium concerns, you only get all that sodium if you drink all the broth. If you just eat the noodles and then stop you only get a fraction of that sodium. I don't drink the broth.
