Nestle to resume sales of Maggi instant noodles in India

Swiss food giant Nestle has resumed the manufacture of its Maggi brand instant noodles in India and plans to be back on the market by November, company officials said today.

Nestle had to withdraw the product in June after India's Food Safety and Standards Authority said Maggi noodles contained "unsafe and hazardous" levels of lead.

The noodles cleared court-mandated laboratory tests this month, with levels of lead well below permissible limits. The Bombay High Court ruled in favour of Nestle to overturn the ban.

Company spokesman Himangshu Manglik said production of Maggi had begun at three plants in India and will hit Indian markets after getting necessary clearances. (dpa)
