Nestle agrees to HC’s proposal of fresh testing of Maggi

(Last Updated On: 31/07/2015)

maggieNestle India, the manufacturer of Maggi instant noodles, told the Bombay High Court that it is ready for an independent lab testing of the product provided the tests are carried out in the presence of a reputed scientist. While hearing Nestle’s petition against the June 5 order of Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) banning nine variants of Maggi, a division bench of Justices VM Kanade and BP Colabawala asked yesterday whether the company is ready for fresh independent tests.

Nestle’s lawyer Iqbal Chhagla said, the company is agreeable but the tests should be conducted in the presence of a renowned scientist and the samples available with the company should be used. Darius Khambata, appearing for Maharashtra Food and Drugs Administration and the FSSAI counsel sought time till today to take instructions from their clients. Khambata also contended that one of the samples must be from the lot collected by state FDA.

The judges earlier said they proposed to order independent testing of Maggi, and sought the parties’ views. The Nestle lawyer alleged that FSSAI and FDA had not followed the principles of natural Justice by not giving a hearing to the company before banning Maggi on the ground of lead content in it being beyond the permissible limit. Chhagala said though only three variants were tested, the regulators banned all nine variants of Maggi. He added there was no substance in the allegation of FSSAI about the company destroying evidence by burning Maggi stocks. He said on the contrary the company has acted on the instructions of the food regulators by destroying Maggi product.
