A report has been submitted to the High Court

The Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institution (BSTI) has found no traces of dangerous elements in 18 pasteurized milk samples from 14 brands.

A report—submitted to the bench of Justice Syed Refat Ahmed and Justice Iqbal Kabir during a hearing on Tuesday—provided the information.

Lawyer Tanvir Ahmed, who filed the writ, was present during the hearing. Deputy Attorney General Kazi Zinat Haque represented the state.

The court has adjourned all court proceedings regarding this case until Thursday.

The 14 brands whose names were cleared are: Aarong Dairy, FARM Fresh Milk, MOO, Milk Vita, Aftab, Ultra, Tania (200gm,500gm), Igloo, Pran Milk, Dairy Fresh, Milk Fresh, Cowhead Pure Milk, Pura, and Ayran.

On May 17 last year, several media outlets published articles based on the report "75% of pasteurized milk is not safe," which was later brought to the High Court's attention. Then, the court ordered for a writ to be filed on the issue.

Lawyer Tanvir Ahmed filed the writ, upon which the court ordered a committee by BSTI to take and test samples of 14 brands of pasteurized milk on the market.
