Mumbai High Court lifted the ban on Maggi Noodles

As we all aware that one of the Nestle India’s product ‘Maggic’ noodles was banned by Central government's Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and Consumer Affairs Ministry had also filed a class action suit against Nestle India seeking about Rs 640 crore in damages for alleged unfair trade practices, false labelling and misleading advertisements.

Couple of months back, In challenging the FSSAI ban Nestle India filed case in Mumbai high court, in August, the court lifted the nation-wide ban imposed by the Indian food regulators on Maggi noodles but ordered a fresh test of samples of the product in three independent labs across India. Today, Mumbai High Court lifted the ban on Maggic and It also quashed the order of Maharashtra's Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) banning production and sale of Maggi noodles in India and the state.

A division bench comprising Justices V M Kanade and B P Colabawalla also set aside the June 5th order of the Central government's Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). They have considered the recent reports of five samples of each variant to three accredited labs in Punjab, Hyderabad and Jaipur. The samples were drawn from 750 crates of samples lying with the company. So, finally the Maggi is back to the market!!!
