The Punjab Food Authority (PFA), on Wednesday, foiled an attempt to supply 10,000 litres of chemically contaminated milk while carrying out a raid on Canal Road near Punjab University Gate 9.
Acting on the tip-off, the dairy safety team under the supervision of PFA Director General Shoaib Khan Jadoon raided and caught a milk-supplying vehicle loaded with thousands of litres of milk.
He revealed that the mafia has adopted a new way for milk adulteration practice. Now milk adulteration has also been carried out after getting clearance from the screening pickets of PFA at the city’s entry points, he shared shocking details. But he vowed to devise a comprehensive system to nab such elements.
He said that PFA’s dairy team has taken milk sample for a screening test on the spot and taken action against milk supplier over found results not up to the mark. He said the team has found the adulteration of polluted water and detergents in the milk.
