Nestle should've waited before burning Maggi - it could've distributed Maggi to the underfed

Nestle hastily burnt anywhere between 27,000-29,000 tons of Maggi in India, worth about INR 320 crore [link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4] even as it claimed in parallel that Maggi was safe. That's approximately 2,80,00,000 kg of Maggi, or about 28 crore packs of 100 g Maggi packing. This WSJ story given an even higher number - 40 crore packs.

Had Nestle waited a little before incinerating this incredibly-large number of Maggi packs, it could've saved all those packs [since Nestle eventually got a go for Maggi], and could've provided two packs of Maggi per child to 20 crore hungry and poor kids in India. How good this would've been!
