Maggi Clears Lab Tests Ordered by Bombay High Court


New Delhi: Giving Nestle a huge relief All Maggi samples tested at three labs as directed by the Bombay High Court have been found to be safe, confirmed the manufacturer on Friday. “All the 90 samples, covering six variants, tested by these laboratories are clear with lead much below the permissible limits,” the statement read.

Nestle had to withdraw all varieties of Maggi noodles in June amid country-wide scrutiny for high content of monosodium glutamate (a taste enhancer) and lead in some samples. India’s food regulator – the Food Safety Standards Authority of India or FSSAI – later banned Maggi, ruling it “unsafe and hazardous”.
