The Bombay High court has asked the country’s food safety authority and Nestle India to retest Maggi noodles, it was reported on Friday.

Nestle has been at the centre of India’s worst food scare in a decade, after a regulator in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh in May found excess lead in a sample of its popular Maggi noodles.

The company withdrew the brand from Indian stores last month. It has since challenged the findings of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) in court.

The next hearing of the case is scheduled for August 3.
