Maggie noodlesHigh Court (HC) of Bombay on 30 June 2015 granted permission to Nestle India to export its 2-minute Maggie noodles. It said that the ban on sale of the noodles within the country will continue.

The direction was given while hearing petition filed by Nestle India against food safety regulator FSSAI's country-wide ban of Maggi noodles. In its plea, Nestle demanded revoking of the ban of the sale of Maggie in the country.

Earlier on 25 June 2015, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) had justified its 5 June 2015 ban on Nestle India's 2-minute Maggi noodles in questioning the company's safety claims.

It said that 30 out of 72 samples tested positive for dangerously high levels of lead and even MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), despite the packets’ ‘no added MSG’ claim. Further, it said that the present situation has arisen because the petitioner had failed to adhere to its own declared policy and principles.

The HC posted the next hearing of Nestle's challenge to 14 July 2015.
