Mumbai : The Bombay High Court, on Tuesday, allowed Nestle India to export its 'controversial' Maggi noodles. The leading noodles company is currently banned in Maharashtra and other states. The company is "at liberty to export," a division bench of Justices VM Kanade and BP Colabawalla ruled.

The company told the court that it was in the process of recalling and incinerating product packages. Appearing on behalf of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), senior advocate Mehmood Pracha  argued, "If the products are so safe why don't they export. Why put the blame on us?"

The next hearing is scheduled to be held on July 14. Maggi noodles has been under scanner for containing lead and monosodium glutamate (MSG), a taste enhancer, beyond the permissible levels. MSG is often added to packaged foods but Nestle India failed to mention it in the list of ingredients.
