CAA seizes 720MT outdated milk powder

Consumers Affairs Authority (CAA) officials seized around 720 metric tonnes (MT) of outdated milk powder being sold in public markets in Kuliyapitiya, Kurunegala, recently.

The raids were carried out under the supervision of CAA Chief Investigations Officer Lanka Dikkumbura.

The milk powder seized had been that which had been set aside by the Milco company as livestock feed, officials said. But the stocks had been purchased by traders, who had then added them to milk powder packets to be put on sale, they added.

Dikkumbura told the media that the suspects would be produced at the Kuliyapitiya Magistrate’s Court on January 18.
