Karnataka, Gujarat lifted ban on Maggi Noodles

Oct 20, 2015 16:02 IST

The Karnataka and Gujarat Governments on 19 October 2015 lifted the ban on manufacturing and sale of Nestle India's popular instant food brand Maggi noodles.

The decision came following the clean chit given by three government-approved laboratories to Maggi noodles. All the samples of Maggi cleared tests conducted by three laboratories, as mandated by the Bombay High Court. The company will now relaunch the product soon.

The Gujarat Food and Drug Control Authority (FDCA) lifted the ban on sale of Maggi noodles after the Bombay High Court lifted the nationwide ban on it in August 2015.

The Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) banned Maggi noodles saying it was unsafe and hazardous for consumption after finding lead levels beyond permissible limits in June 2015.
