Synthetic Milk a reality

White paint is being added to what we know and drink as milk. Seriously shameful and no wonder people are having cancers so much. Fssai whats your approach to crackdown across India.

Fifty seven people have been arrested after three factories producing "highly toxic synthetic milk" were raided in the Gwalior-Chambal region of Madhya Pradesh on Friday, the Special Task Force of the state police has said.The spurious milk was being supplied to branded milk units in six states - Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana and Maharashtra.
The three synthetic milk units were busted in Amba in Morena district and Lahar in Bhind district of the Gwalior-Chambal region.

Rajesh Bhadoria, STF Superintendent of Police, said the teams "seized around 10,000 litres of spurious milk, over 500 kg of spurious Mawa or Khoya and over 200 kg synthetic paneer (cottage cheese)".

"In total 20 tankers and 11 pick-up vans containing spurious milk and other products were seized. Also, liquid detergent, refined oil and glucose powder were seized in large quantities from these units," he added.

In every one litre of the spurious milk manufactured at the three units, 30 per cent milk was used in combination with refined oil, liquid detergent, white paint and glucose powder, officials said. A similar formula was used to make synthetic cottage cheese, which was supplied to all major markets in north, central and western India.

Sources said the synthetic milk was produced at the cost of Rs 5 per litre but it was supplied to major markets at prices spanning between Rs 45 to Rs 50 per liter. "Cottage cheese was supplied at prices ranging between Rs 100-Rs 150 per kg. The three synthetic milk chilling units were working 24x7 and producing around 2 lakh liters milk daily," an officer said. more

If they sell to branded milk units, can they identify or not. If they can not they must be selling to public with brand name. more  
i AGREE WITH Mr.SHYAM CHANDRA OJHA that Govt. of its own can collect
the data for milk production and milk consumption and the difference to be analysed and culprits caught,booked and punished under Section 302 of IPC. more  
What our friends in FSSAI are doing. Crime Branch also can investigate and take action. more  
the data for milk production and milk consumption are available with the govt.. if not , the same to be generated. the difference to be analysed and culprits caught and punished. but yet more important aspect is to enhance the production. this will generate sustainable employment, contribute towards healthy population and it will be positive addition to the economy. more  
India was born out of corruption and we have to continue with it as a legacy. Some face saving actions would be taken only. Sorry to say so. more
