Bombay High Court to Hear Nestle's Plea Over Ban on Maggi Noodles Today
New Delhi:  The Bombay High Court - where Nestle has filed a plea over the country-wide ban on its Maggi noddles - said it would hear the case today.

"As part of the efforts to resolve the Maggi noodles issue, Nestle India has today approached the Bombay High Court raising issues of interpretation of the Food Safety and Standards Act 2011 while seeking a judicial review of the order dated June 6, 2015, passed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Maharashtra and the order dated June 5 passed by FSSAI," Nestle had said  in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange.

"At the same time, we are continuing withdrawal of Maggi noodle products. This action will not interfere with this process," the company said.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) had issued an order last week banning all variants of Nestle India's Maggi noodles, saying they were "unsafe and hazardous" for human consumption.

On the same day Nestle India recalled Maggi noodles from the market after several states banned it as tests showed it contained the taste enhancer MSG (monosodium glutamate) and lead in excess of permissible limits.

Nestle was trading 0.44 per cent higher at Rs 6,083.35 on BSE today.
