An apex court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Prafulla C. Pant said that the local commissioner shall collect samples of Maggi noodles from the companies' Lucknow-based godown and send them to the lab. The court said the report of the testing would be submitted before it.

The court order came on Nestle's appeal challenging the NCDRC December 9/10 order directing the testing of Maggi noodles sample by a Chennai lab.

The court said the NCDRC would not proceed with the hearing of the class action suit filed by the union of India claiming Rs.640 crore from Nestle for marketing noodles with suspect quality.
