Nestle dragged to court in UP over ‘sub-standard’ Maggi noodles
Nestle India and its two sellers have been dragged to court over alleged sub-standard Maggi noodles, a charge denied by the FMCG major which questioned the testing standards.
District Designated Officer Manoj Kumar Verma of Barbanki said that a case was lodged in the court of additional district magistrate on Tuesday after Nestle failed to reply to notices sent by it after samples were found “sub-standard during lab test at Gorakhpur”.
When contacted, a Nestle India spokesperson said: “We have not received any notice from the concerned authorities about samples of Maggi noodles collected from Umesh Chandra, Barabanki. We have also not received any notice from the Court and we have heard about this only from a media report.”
