Mere suspicion on food quality is a reasonable ground for action: FSSAI

The court was hearing a petition filed by Nestle India against FSSAI’s June 5 order banning nine variants of Maggi and Maharashtra government’s order prohibiting the sale of Maggi.

Food Safety Standards Association of India (FSSAI) argued in the Bombay High Court that a mere suspicion about a food snack being sub-standard in quality would be a reasonable ground to take appropriate steps to stop the sale of the product, reported PTI.

Anil Singh, FSSAI Counsel stated that after a bench of Justices V M Kanade and B P Colabwala raised a query whether the suspected food was unsafe for consumption or stop the sale of the entire product line.

The court was hearing a petition filed by Nestle India against FSSAI’s June 5 order banning nine variants of Maggi and Maharashtra government’s order prohibiting the sale of Maggi.

Anil Singh, senior counsel and acting Advocate General of Maharashtra, said that in the case of Maggi there have been violations of law. Maggi’s label is deceptive as it said “No MSG” in contents and presence of lead in the product is beyond permitted.

The company claimed that it had tested its product in 2700 laboratories in India and also in abroad and the tests have indicated that the lead content was less than the allowed limit of 0.5 percent.
