The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) discarded a huge quantity of contaminated milk and lodged an FIR against two milk suppliers on account of adulteration in Lahore.

The dairy safety team had set up a screening picket at Thokar Niaz Baig, which inspected dozens of milk carrying vehicles.

PFA Director General Shoaib Khan Jadoon said that the dairy team took milk samples for screening test on the spot and took strict action against milk sup-pliers. He said that adulterated milk was being sup-plied on three vehicles (RC-338, LR-4437, LET-

4544) for supplying to different milk shops and tea stalls in the provincial metropolis.
He said that the PFA discarded tainted milk. He said that adulterated ingredients were usually used for increasing the thickness and quantity of milk. However, the use of tainted milk poses a threat to users’ health, he added.
