Maharashtra to move Supreme Court against HC order lifting ban on Maggi

Mumbai, Oct.27 : The Maharashtra government has decided to move the Supreme Court against Bombay High Court’s order lifting ban on Maggi noodles.

Earlier, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) had banned Maggi noodles after finding lead levels beyond permissible limits, following which the company had withdrawn it from the market. Nestle India had then challenged the ban by FSSAI in the Bombay High Court.

Meanwhile, the Nestle plans to resume production of Maggi and launch it in markets by first week of November.

Karnataka and Gujarat had Monday revoked the ban on manufacture and sale of Nestle India’s popular instant food brand.

The announcements by the two states followed clean chit given by three government-approved laboratories to Maggi noodles, which was banned by central food regulator FSSAI and various state-level watchdogs in June (ANI)
