@Carolinerathabe on Twitter sent a warning out to people cooking noodles. The popular social media user, with over 205 000 followers, shared a few snaps of a packet of instant noodles that had been cooked.
The noodles looked okay for the most part but upon further inspection, a few of the noodles looked extremely suspicious. The majority of the noodles displayed a pure white colour while a few dodgy looking noodles were grey and slimy.
It is unclear if Caroline was the one who cooked the noodles or if she just reshared the post. South Africans are concerned about the awful looking instant food and shared their thoughts in the replies section under the post.

Double tragedy: Siblings mysteriously die in eMbalenhle after consuming noodles
In related news, Briefly News previously reported that two siblings from the eMbalenhle township of Mpumalanga died mysteriously shortly after each consuming a packet of instant noodles on 9 November.
Although the children's deaths are still being investigated after police opened inquest dockets, their mother, Matlatsi Makofane, believes Thato, 9, and, Keamoketswe, 13, may have reacted badly to the noodles they ate.
Ridge Times reported that before leaving for school on the morning of the incident, the two sat down for their noodles breakfast. Their grandmother, Winnie, confirmed in an interview with the publication that Thato had left the house first, while Keamoketswe stayed back to complete a school assignment.
