Karnataka, Gujarat lift ban on Maggi

New Delhi: The Governments of Karnataka and Gujarat lifted the ban on Maggie on Monday.

Karnataka Health Minister UT Khader said there was a lack of clarity over the permissible limits of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead.

“We are withdrawing the ban on Maggie in Karnataka after going by the norms established by the central government. We are lifting ban after tests done by the Karnataka Government in labs of Mysore and West Bengal. New Maggie products will go the market after all tests,” he added.

The sale of Nestle’s popular instant food was banned by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and various state-level agencies over more than permissible limits of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead was found. (ANI)
