The producers and distributors of milk products and supplements that contain whey protein had been instructed to remove their stocks from shelves until further notice, Director General of Health Dr. P. G. Mahipala said today.

Issuing a statement, the director had instructed all the Medical Officers of Health (MOH) and Public Health Inspectors (PHI) to search shops for milk products that had whey protein.

With the support of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) Chief Medical Officer Pradeep Kariyawasam, a team of 50 PHIs conducted raids today in Colombo to trace milk products which contained whey protein and/or DCD.

Ministry Media Spokesman D. Wanninayake said that there were still milk products that contained whey protein in shops.

“We issued a statement to producers to remove milk products that contain whey protein and/or DCD last week. Today during our investigations we saw that the products that have DCD were out of the market but products which contained whey protein were still there,” he said.

“This is why the Director had issued a statement demanding the immediate removal of products that contain whey protein,” he said.   

Mr. Wanninayake said that milk products such as cheese, milk toffees, chocolates and biscuits which has whey protein as ingredient should also be removed from the market. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Fonterra will be be back with another name when the Sahodhara Samagama get involved, or when My Three has got his commission.

    It seems there will be a short suply/out of stock infant milk in the market. what do we have as options.... nothing.....
    Will babies accept this?

    In china domestic brands are not popular in infant milk coz they dont trust them at all.... so how can we as we any way dont have local infant milk...
    Are these officials blind?

    Sri lankan bull Tuesday, 13 August 2013 06:10 AM

    Why our people are too much talked favouring about imported poisones milk.

    Mm Monday, 12 August 2013 02:03 PM

    Why the sudden concern for consumer safety when there are so many local brands made with low quality ingredients!! Either the government wants to launch its own milk products or Someone is about to get a good deal struck! It's all being blown out of proposition to kick fonterra out!

    Okay, so how does the common man know which products have whey protein and which don't?

    LonwaboTsotsobe Tuesday, 13 August 2013 08:48 AM

    i thought they didn't drink milk in china... i thought they drank the milk of dragons or did something weird like that...

    xlntgson Monday, 12 August 2013 02:41 PM

    What is the alternative? Drink milk fresh from home grown cows, relax municipal law, dengue scare etc. We can't trust farms and brands lying about natural, eco friendly etc.

    Anton, reading your comments I always think you eat grass with punnakku. Now the cat is out of the bag.
    Let me tether you in a grassland.
