Karnataka and Gujarat lifted ban on Nestle product after Bombay High Court’s ruling
State governments of Karnataka and Gujarat and India lifted on Monday ban on Maggi after the popular instant noodles passed all three tests conducted on orders of the Bombay High Court.
Maggi was banned in several Indian states earlier this year after impermissible limits of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and lead was found in the product.
“Gujarat’s Food and Drugs Control Administration (FDCA) had lifted the ban on Maggi in Gujarat during August after the Bombay High Court passed an order to lift the ban across India. We took the decision based on the court order,” said FDCA commissioner Koshia.
Indian court overturns Nestle noodle ban, orders new tests
However, the Maharashtra government still opposes the court ruling, and has appealed against the Nestle product in Supreme Court.
The court sent 90 Maggi samples to laboratories to be tested, and the results came in favour of the product.
Additionally, tests conducted in countries, including the UK, USA, Singapore, Australia and others have found Indian-manufactured Maggi noodles safe for consumption.
