The Supreme Court has barred four companies, manufacturing milk products, from selling and marketing substandard items.
On this note, Sindh’s authorities have been told to remove milk belonging to Day Fresh, Nurpur, Day Fresh UHT and Sky Milk from sale racks.
The chief justice issued the orders after laboratory results failed to convince the court about the quality of the milk supplied by these companies in the city. During the hearing, the chief justice remarked that these companies were selling tea whiteners and not milk.
At the last hearing earlier this month, Justice Mian Saqib Nisar ordered the authorities to conduct laboratory test of all brands of packed milk available in the markets of Karachi. He also expressed anger over authorities concerned for not submitting a detailed report regarding administrating injections to cows.
He had further remarked that all people, including children and adults, were forced to consume unhealthy milk, adding that citizens were anxious over the use of chemicals in milk.
The court also imposed a ban on giving injections to cows for increasing milk production. The Chief Justice remarked that cancer was spreading due to use of such injections.
