Carrying out a grand operation, the PFA teams confiscated more than 21,600 litre unwholesome food, including 1,000 litre contaminated milk, 20,000 litre chemicals, 600 kg banaspati ghee and a huge quantity of raw material. The authority also took into possession the machines during the raids.

PFA Director General Muhammad Usman said that tainted milk was being by prepared using powder, chemicals and banaspati ghee. He said impure milk was supplied in different cities of Punjab especially Lahore. Use of tainted milk is injurious to health and causes stomach diseases, he added.
