Good news for Maggi lovers as the very popular instant noodle brand is set to return to store shelves. Nestle have positively cleared the tests mandated by the Bombay High Court. The company will start the production within two-three weeks.
“We have received test results from all three laboratories (Punjab, Hyderabad and Jaipur) mandated by the Bombay High Court to test Maggi noodles samples. All the 90 samples, covering six variants, tested by these laboratories are clear with lead much below the permissible limits,” Nestle India said in a statement. The company said it is committed to reintroducing Maggi noodles “at the earliest”.
However, the company will start selling only after the designated three laboratories clear the newly manufactured products and will continue to work with the food regulators in this regards.
Last month, Suresh Narayanan, managing director of Nestle, said the company will re-launch Maggi without making any changes to the tastemaker which comes with the noodles. He also said the company is planning to launch a 24X7 consumer engagement service to address the grievances of its customers.
Nestle India announced a voluntary recall of the noodles on June 5, the same day national food regulator Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) banned its sale alleging excessive levels of lead in it and mislabeling on the pack. The recall, the country’s biggest and which grabbed international headlines, almost wiped out the entire instant noodles category and dented the sales of all packaged snacks, as wary consumers avoided them.
In August, the Bombay High Court lifted the ban, but asked the company to get the samples tested before it starts selling the product.
