Mysore laboratory submits report on Maggi samples to SC; next hearing on July 19
New Delhi, April 5: Mysuru laboratory on Tuesday, April 5, submitted test report on Maggi samples in a sealed envelope to the Supreme Court.
Nestle told the apex court that Food Department notification concedes no lab test can determine MSG presence.
"MSG occurs naturally, no added MSG is present in Maggi", it further said.
Meanwhile, SC ordered that report should be given to Nestle and Centre for their view. The SC will hear further arguments on test results on July 19th.
On its part, Centre told SC that first report says lead content is within the permissible limits.
Sixteen reports have been submitted so far by the Mysore labs in connection with Maggi.
On April 1, Food regulator FSSAI had allowed state authorities to start proceedings against noodle or pasta makers if taste enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG) is found in their products despite carrying 'No MSG' or 'No added MSG' label on the packets.
On Jan 13, the Supreme Court had asked the government laboratory in Mysore to further clarify whether test reports relating to lead and glutamic acid in Maggi noodles are within permissible parameters under the law.
