New Delhi:

The Supreme Court has asked the Mysore lab to conduct fresh testing of samples of Maggi noodles in order to ascertain whether lead and MSG are within permissible limits.

The apex court has asked the Mysore lab to submit its report within 8 weeks.

A government petition has alleged that Nestle India had “indulged in unfair trade practices by false labelling of Maggi noodles inasmuch as it states ‘No added MSG’ prominently on packet, despite presence of MSG.” 

Monosodium glutamate is a salt that enhances flavour.
