|Bombay HC lift ban on 2 min Noodles of Nestle|
Bombay High Court on Thursday set aside the ban on Maggi Noodles of Nestle. Earlier Nestle had challenged by way of a petition in the Court the ban imposed by Food Safety Regulator's order.
The present order of setting aside ban is mainly based on technical reasons such as not meeting natural justice principles while issuing such a ban order. As per the Court order, a show cause notice was not issued by the regulatory authorities. The Court also pointed out that tests conducted in non-accredited laboratories are not enough. However Court orderd Nestle to submit fresh samples to three accredited laboratories before starting manufacture again.
The high content of lead in eatables of Nestle, especially in Maggi 2 minute noodles had resulted in a ban all over India in selling Maggi. Various laboratories had tested the samples of Maggi and found lead content in more than approved limits. But many of the tests were negative.
