After the recent Maggi ban and its subsequent upliftment, now Yippee noodles is on the path of courting controversy.

Today’s  Hindustan Times flashed a huge brightly colored advertisement that claims that Yipee is safe and bases the claim on a number of tests it underwent to prove its credibility. However, Indian Express, dated 24th August 2015, in a report claims that excessive lead has been found in the samples of Yippee noodles.

The report says that Uttar Pradesh Food and Drug Authority (FDA) recently found excess lead in ITC’s Yippee noodles. The samples tested contained lead amount  “in excess to the permissible limit”. The tested samples had 1.057 ppm of lead as against the permissible amount of below 1 ppm.

The report has been sent to the FDA Chief Commissioner for permission before filing an official case.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Friday allowed the marketing of a new hearing aid device that can amplify sounds for individuals 18 years or older with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss.

It is the first hearing aid approved by the agency that enables users to fit, programme and control the hearing aid on their own, without assistance from a health care provider, Xinhua news agency reported.

Hearing loss, permanent or temporary, can be caused by aging, exposure to loud noises, certain medical conditions and other factors. Individuals with permanent hearing loss can use hearing aids to help them hear the speech and sounds.

The Bose Hearing Aid is a user-fitted wireless air conduction hearing aid, according to FDA.

Air conduction hearing aids can capture sound vibrations through one or more microphones and the signal is processed, amplified, and played back through an earphone placed in the ear canal.

Patients can adjust the hearing aid through a mobile application on their phone. This technology enables users to fit the hearing aid settings themselves, in real-time and in real-world environments without the assistance of a health care professional.
