The apex court has further directed these reports be supplied to Nestle and the Central government for arguments in July. The next hearing is to be held on July 19.

“We have perused the test reports. We would like Central Food Technological Research Institute, Mysore to apprise this court on two aspects, whether the test report relating to lead and glutamic acid are within the permissible parameters and to clarify that those are within parameters prescribed under the Food Safety Act,” it said.

The order was passed after the court went through two communications received from the Mysore lab, which had carried out the test about the monosodium glutamate (MSG) content in the samples.
