Nestle India on Wednesday said that the company will make efforts to commence the sale of Maggi noodles masala within this month stating that the popular snack has cleared the tests ordered by the Bombay high court at three accredited laboratories.
“We have received the results from all the 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.
