FSSAI moves top court against the ban on Maggi noodles

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India approached the apex court, terming the High Court’s August 13 order as “erroneous” and questioned the sanctity of the samples provided for re-test to government-approved labs.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on Monday moved the Supreme Court against the Bombay high court order lifting the ban on Maggi noodles in the country, reported PTI.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India approached the apex court, terming the High Court’s August 13 order as “erroneous” and questioned the sanctity of the samples provided for re-test to government-approved labs.

In its petition, the FSSAI contended that the High Court “erred” by asking Nestle, the Indian arm of the Swiss company, itself to provide the fresh samples instead of asking a neutral authority to do so.

Prior, the High Court had quashed the orders of the FSSAI and the Maharashtra food regulator FDA, which had banned nine variants of Maggi noodles in the country.

It had said that the principles of natural justice were not followed in executing the ban as the manufacturer was not given a hearing.
