SC asks Mysuru lab to test more samples of Maggi noodles

New Delhi, Jan 13 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked Mysuru-based CFTRI lab to get more samples of Maggi to test the lead and Mono Sodium Glucomate (MSG) contents in its taste makers.

The apex court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice N.V. Ramana also asked the Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) to tell if the lead content found in its tests of Maggi carried out in October, in pursuance to the order of NCDRC, was within the limit prescribed under the food safety law and rules framed under it.

Giving the lab two months time to carry out the tests and submit its report, the court said if the lab needed more samples, it should ask for them.

The next hearing of the matter is on April 5.
