Bombay High Court lifts ban on Maggi, orders fresh tests before it hits market

The Bombay High Court has lifted the ban on Maggi and has ordered fresh tests to prove that the instant noodle brand doesn’t contain excess lead. According to reports, Nestle has been given a period of eight weeks, by which it must have five samples of its noodles tested by three accredited labs, to prove the amount of lead is within permissible limits. If the tests are in Nestle's favour, it can start selling the noodles again.

Reacting to the positive news, the Nestle India stock is currently trading at approximately Rs 6,403, up by almost four per cent. On Twitter as well, people have started rejoicing and #Maggi is trending.

Below are a few of the conversations on Twitter:

On August 12, the Consumer Affairs department filed a complaint against food major Nestle India with the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) seeking damages of Rs 640 crore on the grounds that the company sold unsafe and hazardous products - Maggi noodles, to consumers, thus endangering their health; and also for misleading advertisements.

In response to this, Nestle India came out with a statement the same evening, mentioning their disappointment regarding the unprecedented step of filing of a complaint before the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) against the brand.
