d'nt use packaged milk in Pakistan

Dear Friends

A dnagerous chemical, melamine, is being added
to all the pachaged
milk, along with other substances, in Pakistan . Please do read till the
end which will show you how much of the same is being added in the milk
in Canada , USA and European countries. I
urge all friends in Canada
and USA to inform thier
relatives and friends in Pakistan
so that they stop buying packaged milk and start buying from "Gawalas."
It will be diluted with water but it will at least it will not contain
poisonous chemicals.


Justice Mian Saqib Nisar of the Lahore High Court
expressed grave concern on Wednesday
when the Pakistan
Standards and Quality
Control Authority (PSQCA) chairman confirmed the mixing
of melamine, besides detergents, in packed milk. The judge asked amicus
Barrister Sidra to collect milk samples for tests in a laboratory in London . Barrister Zafar
would contribute Rs10,000 to meet expenses of sample collection.

The Pakistan
Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) chairman on Wednesday
told a
bench of the Lahore

High Court (LHC) that various harmful substances, such as
melamine and
detergents, were indeed being mixed in packaged milk

The percentage of impurities
includes urea,
or melamine as protein booster (30 percent), substandard cooking oil (70
percent), powdered water
chestnut (40 percent), unhygienic water (50 percent),
formalin, a chemical used by doctors to preserve human body (35
penicillin for enhancing the thickness and fragrance of milk (47
percent), hair
removing powder (29 percent), zoonotic pathogens (27 percent) and other
adulterants including soda bicarbonate, to improve the taste.

PSQCA had allowed the indirect
mixing of
5mg melamine in each kilogramme of milk for adults and 1mg in milk for
children, which could be fatal. The petitioner, Barrister Zafarullah
informed the court that amazingly the Pakistan Standard Specifications
for Milk, 2009, had allowed mixing of 5 mg melamine in one kg milk for
consumption and 1mg in one kg milk for children. He said the PSQCA had
given a single reason why the dangerous substance like melamine, which
was a
kind of plastic, was allowed to be added in milk since it was proved to
been a major cause of renal failure and other deadly diseases. He said
the main
reason melamine was allowed to be mixed in milk was because the major
chunk of
natural protein was extracted from the milk before packaging and
melamine was added
to artificially compensate the loss of protein and thinness of milk. He
example of China
where three persons found guilty of adding melamine in milk were hanged

Melamine Tolerable Daily Intake
across the
world are as follows

EU : 0.5 milligrams per kg of body
mass per

Canada : 0.35 mg per kg of body mass per day
US : Originally 0.63 mg but now
0.063 mg
per kg of body mass per day

WHO : 0.2 mg per kg of body mass per

China : 2.5 mg per kg in products with more than 15%
milk content

As the Daily Times report says, besides
melamine for increasing protein content, PQSCA provided evidence that
there was
formalin and certain pathogens in the milk content as well. People are
paying a
premium price for these products. Corporate giants are even worse than
gawala at adulteration of milk. When did our morality go the dogs?

I feel that even if conclusively
before the court and the judgment obviously public data then, mainstream
will not create the necessary hype as they would certainly fear losing
advertising money from giants such as Nestle, Haleeb Foods and Engro Foods.

Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah
“The media is directed not to report on the contents of the report
submitted by Eurofins Global Cenral,
Hamburg, Germany
dated February 22, 2010, till further orders. The office is directed to
intimate the media accordingly.”
