The Special Task Force of Madhya Pradesh in central India have raided three factories which manufactured highly toxic synthetic milk and supplied it to six states in India. Reported by NDTV, in every one litre of the spurious ‘milk’, only 30 percent milk was used along with refined oil, liquid detergent, shampoo, white paint and glucose powder.

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 (evaporated milk solids) 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 plants,” he said.
