The Shahjahanpur Court has fine of Rs 62 lakh on consumer goods giant Nestle and its distributors, sellers after a laboratory report confirmed the presence of ash content, higher than the permissible limit, in samples of Maggi noodles.
It may be noted that seven samples were collected and sent for testing at a laboratory in Lucknow in 2015 and the report was received in 2016, following which seven cases were lodged at the additional district magistrate’s court.
