Last week Nestle Maggi was found safe after the Government-Approved Lab tested its quality once again. And now, the Bombay High Court on Thursday lifted the ban on Maggi noodles, by setting aside the orders of food authorities.
The court said that the “principles of natural justice” and procedures were not followed. The court also pointed out that a show-cause notice was not issued before the ban. The HC also said that the samples were not tested at accredited laboratories raising doubts on the results.
However, the Court asked the company to submit five samples of its nine variants of noodles to three accredited laboratories, before Nestle is allowed to manufacture the noodles. The court said that if the content of lead is found within permissible limits then they can go ahead with the manufacture and sale.
According to FSSAI, Maggi contained leads and MSG which were beyond the permissible limits. But Nestle claimed that its own tests had reported that the Maggi noodles were safe for consumption and none of the countries where it sold the product, including in the UK, Australia and Singapore any problems had been reported.
We just want our Maggi back on our plates. Anyway, with this news, it’s time a celebrate the welcoming party of Maggi with our friends!
