According to the authorities of the district, it had collected the samples a year ago in November and sent them for the lab test, which had found the ash content above the allowable limits of human consumption. While Questioning the lab findings, Nestle said it has not received the order still and would file an appeal instantly once it gets the order. Nestle India spokesperson said that

“While we have not received the orders passed by the adjudication officer, we have been informed that the samples are of the year 2015 and the issue pertains to ‘ash content’ in Noodles”

He also added that “This appears to be a case of utilization of incorrect standards, and we will file an appeal immediately once we receive the order.

In the year 2015, Nestle India and other companies had expressed to the relevant authorities, via the industry associations, to set standards specific to instant noodles to avoid confusion amongst consumers and enforcement officers. “The standards have been introduced since 2015, and the product complies with these criteria. We regret the trouble it may cause to consumers,” he said, adding that “We strongly recommend that Maggi Noodles are 100% safe for consumption.”
