MAGGI- Coming Back with a Bang or Not?

HC reprieve to Maggi puts greater onus on complaint filed by ...Opinion
These were some of the headlines which made news across all the tabloids on 13th August,2015 and #Maggi trended over Twitter for more than a day. Yes,the emotions of happiness, amusement, relief, shock, excitement and much more has travelled through all the Indians after reading these news across Internet and TV news channels that Bombay High Court has lifted the ban and ordered the fresh tests to be conducted on the samples of Maggi Noodles.
Maggi Noodles are loved by one and all in India and it can be easily located in the kitchen of one out of three Indian households.It won't be an understatement if I say that people in India may not know about all the different linguistic groups residing in our country but all these groups must have heard and eaten Maggi once in their lives.

Maggi can be a comfort food for some,late night backup for hostellers,quick to make food for trekkers,best option to eat in college canteen,etc. but substituting it with some other brand of noodles is not an option for many.When news channels started circulating facts some three months back that it has been tested with impermissible amount of lead in it,it came as a shocker and different state governments ordering Nestle to call back all the stock to pile back in the godowns was no good piece of information too.
But my question or rather a doubt in understanding some titbits is that if Indian labs have reported the higher than required amount of lead in the samples,then how come the same samples have the vertically opposite figures in the reports published by foreign labs which clearly makes out that one out of these two is not what it seems. Secondly,how a big multi-national company like Nestle which also has a good reputation in the market can oversee the sample-analysis reports which might cause health-related problems to its consumers? Lastly,why some people try to forge the lab results as it seems in the current scenario to me because of that report all this havoc came into place and news are also about that Nestle consultants have also advised to sue the Indian government?
It is safe to say that the clouds of doubt and questions will surely fade in the near bright future.All we can now hope that the new samples will result with reports that can put this adored commodity back to the shelves of the departmental stores in the Indian market.

I just want to add that I am not judging anyone neither accusing nor do I want to.These are my views and take on the situation, I only want my favourite snack back in my house and on my plate,that's it.
