On its response, a nestle India spokesperson said that it “appears to be a case of application of incorrect standards.”

It’s been only two years that Maggi faced a controversial trouble. In June 2015, Maggi was banned by FSSAI as it happened to contain lead that was beyond permissible limits. As a result, Nestle India had to withdraw the product Maggi from the market. It created a huge stir after the Maggi got ban. But after a lot of legal battles, Maggi was brought back to the market.

But once again, the brand is under a serious question. Nestle India said that it is yet to receive the order and it would file an appeal urgently as soon as it receives the order. Nestle spokesperson said, “While we have not received the orders passed by the adjudication officer, we have been informed that the samples are of year 2015 and the issue pertains to ‘ash content’ in Noodles”.
