Maggi controversy: Company agrees there is lead in maggie

TSL News Network

Jan 03: The problems of multinational food company Nestle India are going to grow again. The company has admitted in the Supreme Court that there is some amount of lead in Maggi. After accepting a mistake on behalf of the company, it is possible that this case will catch further and fall.

550 tonnes of maggi was destroyed in 2015 due to not being able to meet the health safety standards. The government has demanded compensation of Rs 650 crore in this case.

The company is arguing that Maggi had lead in the permissible range. The judge of the Supreme Court asked the company’s lawyer, why should they eat lead-noodles? 

A bench headed by Justice Dhananjay Y Chandrachud said that the report of the Central Food Technology Research Institute (CFTRI) in this case would be the basis of the proceedings. Maggi samples were examined in this institute.

The Supreme Court had earlier banned proceedings running in the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC), in this case,  when Nestle challenged it.
