March 8, 2019

LAHORE: Punjab Food Authority’s dairy safety teams have disposed of 15,000 litres of tainted milk being carried on four milk vehicles.

PFA Director General Muhammad Usman led the operation. He said a special raid was conducted following a tip-off. He said the milk was blended with toxic chemicals, hazardous dry powder and polluted water to enhance thickness and improve the quantity of milk. All four trucks have been caught by placing screening picket, he said and added that the trucks were approaching Lahore via Kasur route. He said the drivers and trucks will remain in custody until they reveal the real accused and their production units behind. Adulteration Mafia was trying to supply poisonous milk to masses in the name of pure milk. Usman said a comprehensive policy is being designed against milk adulteration mafia and expanded the activities against them according to the vision of Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan. Moreover, he said pasteurisation policy was the only way to get rid and implementation on it will be started by 2022.
