Mumbai 13 August:
In a huge relief to Nestle, the ban on Maggi noodles has been lifted by a court in Mumbai.The Bombay High Court has, however, asked for fresh tests.
In June, the country's food safety regulator banned Maggi as "unsafe and hazardous for human consumption" after excessive amounts of lead were reported in samples tested in Uttar Pradesh.
Nestle was also accused of violating labeling rules and misleading customers by declaring the noodles have do not contain added MSG or added mono-sodium glutamate (MSG), a taste enhancer.
Nestle recalled Maggi from shops across the country while asserting its snack is safe and challenged the ban in court.
