A Supreme Court Bench of Justices Dipak Misra and Prafulla C Pant on Wednesday ordered testing of samples of Maggi noodles in a Mysuru laboratory after the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) had directed that it be done in Chennai.

The apex consumer commission had on December 10 sent 16 more samples of Maggi noodles for testing at Chennai to ascertain the quantity of lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG) in them, in connection with the Centre’s ₹640-crore suit against the company for allegedly unfair trade practices.

During the arguments, Nestle India Ltd, through senior advocate Harish Salve, opposed the NCDRC’s direction for a test at Chennai, saying it was not accredited for a salt and lead test.
