Maggi Row: SC Serves Notice to Centre


New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued a notice to Centre over fresh testing of the Maggi samples. The apex court will tomorrow hear Maggi noodles manufacturer Nestle India’s plea, reported ANI.

The court had on Saturday sought a response from Maggi noodles manufacturer and Maharashtra government on a plea filed by food regulator FSSAI. The plea is against the Bombay High Court verdict lifting ban on nine variants of Maggi noodles and asking the company to go for fresh tests.

An apex court bench fixed the plea for hearing on January 13 when it will consider FSSAI’s prayer for stay of the High Court verdict.
