New Delhi: The new stock of Nestle’s Maggi has cleared all the tests ordered by Bombay High Court at three accredited laboratories, Nestle India said on Wednesday. The effort will now be on to re-launch the popular snack within this month.
"We have received the results from all three NABL (National Accreditation Board for Testing Calibration Laboratories) mandated by the Bombay High Court to test newly-manufactured Maggi noodles samples," the company said in a regulatory filing with stock exchanges.
"All the samples of the Maggi noodles masala have been cleared with lead much below permissible limits," the statement said, adding this has validated their stand, maintained all along, that the noodles were and continue to be safe.
"We will make our best effort to commence the sale of Maggi noodles masala within this month, as well as continue engaging with the states where permissions are needed or specific directions may be necessary."
The company said Maggi was currently being manufactured at Nanjangud in Karnataka, Moga in Punjab and Bicholim in Goa, and that it was engaging with the state governments of Himachal Pradesh and the Uttarakhand for commencing production at Tahliwal and Pantnagar, respectively.
Nestlé India has always maintained that Maggi Noodles are safe. Nestle India has conducted over 3500 tests representing over 200 million packs in both national as well as international accredited laboratories and all reports are clear.
