Consumer court orders tests on Maggi samples


New Delhi: The apex consumer court on Thursday ordered tests on nine samples of Maggi noodles from nine different batches.

The decision was taken by a bench of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC).

The NCDRC said the Maggi samples should be sent to accredited laboratories after verifying the seal and samples in its presence.

The bench of Justice V.K. Jain and Justice B.C. Gupta was hearing a class action suit filed against Nestle India, regarding the alleged high levels of lead content in the company’s brand Maggi noodles.

The government counsel had requested the NCDRC to allow them to procure more samples from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) but the demand was not accepted.

The samples to be tested would be Maggi Masala and Veg Atta noodles.
