Nestle agrees to High Court\'s proposal of fresh testing of Maggi

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.

The manufacturer of Maggi instant noodles, Nestle India, today again told the Bombay High Court that it was ready for an independent lab testing of the product provided the tests were carried out in the presence of a reputed scientist, reported PTI.

The division bench of Justices V M Kanade and B P Colabawala, while hearing Nestle's petition against the 5th June order of Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) banning nine variants of Maggi, today asked whether the company was ready for fresh independent tests.

Iqbal Chhagla, Nestle's lawyer said that the company was satisfied but the tests should be conducted in the presence of a renowned scientist and the samples available with the company should be used.

Maharashtra Food and Drugs Administration, Darius Khambata and the FSSAI counsel sought time till tomorrow 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 also said that 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.

Moreover, Chhagla said that only three variants were tested and the regulators prohibited all the nine variants of Maggi.

He further added that there was no substance in the allegation of FSSAI about the company destroying evidence by burning Maggi stock.
