Consumer court sends 13 Maggi samples to Mysuru lab for testing

The order came soon after Nestle agreed for testing its Maggi noodles samples only in a government-accredited laboratory.

The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission has ordered testing of around 13 samples of Maggi noodles at the Central Food Technological Research Institute in Mysuru to determine if they contained any lead and monosodium glutamate.

The 13 samples are from seven separate batches. The court asked the central laboratory to complete the test within four weeks only if possible, reported PTI.

The order came soon after Nestle agreed for testing its Maggi noodles samples only in a government-accredited laboratory.

Nestle India Ltd told the court that permissible amount of natural monosodium glutamate will be found in the samples but there will be no added MSG in its products.

The court added that the lab will test both the noodles and the taste-maker inside the packet separately.

The court was hearing a class action suit filed by the centre, seeking damages worth Rs. 640 crore, after tests conducted by some States found more-than-acceptable levels of lead in Maggi noodles.

The government had brought 25 samples of Maggi products, out of which only 13 will be sent to the Mysuru lab. Nestle said rest of the samples were either damaged or duplicate.
