Update: Nurpur UHT Milk, which was included in SC’s list of banned milk products, responded with a clarification over its social media page:

  • the people who made milk … just like a cow milk (refer to tv and whatsapp videos), i curious who guide them for the formula ? this is chemistry which needs knowledge of ingredients involved but here Who Cares, we will make money from them.

  • Olpers was the reason, that Ayesha Mumtaz got sacked.
    And here Olpers made it to the list..
    Kudons. you can’t trust anything these days

  • Nurpur was banned based on the lab report stated presence of microbes in UHT which is very unlikely in a sterile pack. Lab Competence is vital to implement strict checks. Industry loose its reputation for nothing. Responsibility & integrity are missing elements , not in the interest of Pakistan.
