Nestle relaunches Maggi Noodles
Maggi returns: this time you can also shop for it on Snapdeal
Nestle India today relaunched Maggi noodles in the country, five months after the popular snack was banned over presence of unsafe levels of lead.
“Delighted to hand over MAGGI Noodles to consumers to whom it belongs”- the company’s India twitter handle tweeted.
In June, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), banned the production and sale of Maggi amid claims that samples contained dangerously high levels of lead and the taste enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG). The ban was overturned by the Bombay High Court a month later.
The high court asked Nestle India to get samples tested by three accredited labs, in view of public health concerns. The company later announced the tests were cleared.
All samples of the newly manufactured batches from its three plants – Nanjangud (Karnataka), Moga (Punjab) and Bicholim (Goa) – were cleared by three National Accreditation Board for Testing Calibration Laboratories (NABL) accredited labs, as mandated by the Bombay High Court.
“Now that the orders of the Bombay High Court have been complied with, we will make our best endeavor to commence the sale of MAGGI Noodles Masala within this month as well as continue engaging with states where permissions are needed or specific directions may be necessary,” Nestle India had said in a statement earlier this month.
