Allow government labs to test food products, FSSAI to SC

New Delhi, Dec 11 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Friday sought response from Nestle and Maharashtra government on a FSSAI plea seeking a stay of the Bombay High Court order prohibiting food testing by the government labs not accreditated under new food safety law.

An apex court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Prafulla C. Pant also issued notice on a FSSAI plea for putting the sale of Maggi on hold as it was a proprietary product and it’s sale was contrary to the Section 22 of the FSSAI Act.

However, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the court that FSSAI for now was not pressing for this prayer.

The court directed the hearing of the matter on January 16 as Nestle, represented by the senior counsel Harish Salve, said that it would file its response by January 5.
