LAHORE – During a raid on Wednesday, Punjab Food Authority (PFA) confiscated more than a million rotten eggs from a factory in Lahore’s Mangal Mandi area.

According to Director-General PFA Noorul Ameen Mengal, the eggs were worth Rs15 million and were confiscated from an eggs processing unit of a renowned biscuit company. The factory was using these eggs to prepare powder.

Earlier this year, PFA wasted 800 litres of milk adulterated with toxic chemicals in Faisalabad.

PFA officials examined 40 containers of milk in Faisalabad and found it to be adulterated with formalin – a chemical used chiefly as a preservative for biological specimens – as well as urea, salt and water.

The food authority disposed of 800 litres of substandard milk and arrested two persons in connection with it.
