The Bombay High Court on Friday refused to grant relief to Nestle over its petition against the FSSAI’s country-wide ban on Maggi noodles.

The next hearing on the matter is scheduled for June 30.

Nestle India had yesterday approached the court against the food safety regulator’s ban on its popular instant noodles.

The company had sought a judicial review of the order dated June 5, 2015 passed by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and against the order dated June 5, 2015 by the Food and Drug

Administration (FDA) in Maharashtra.

The FSSAI had earlier directed Nestle India to withdraw nine variants of Maggi noodles found unsafe from the market and to stop the further production and sale of the same.

The order to Nestle stated that the regulatory body has noted three ‘major violations’, namely the presence of lead detected in the product in excess of the maximum permissible levels; misleading labelling information on the package reading ‘No added MSG’; and thirdly the release of a non-standardised food product ‘Maggi Oats Masala Noodles with Tastemaker’ in the market, without risk assessment and grant of product approval.
