HC to 14 companies: Stop producing, selling of pasteurized milk

The High coat dictated to 14 companies Stop producing, selling of pasteurized milk. The bench of Justice Syed Refaat Ahmed and Justice Md Iqbal Kabir passed the order on Sunday

The High Court has ordered 14 registered companies--including Milk Vita, Pran and Aarong-- to stop production and selling of pasteurized milk across Bangladesh for five weeks.

The bench of Justice Syed Refaat Ahmed and Justice Md Iqbal Kabir passed the order on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the US says there is no safe level of lead for children. It can impair IQ and affect a child's ability to pay attention. When children ingest lead, they absorb about 50% of it into their bloodstream. Eating low levels of cadmium, over time, can damage the kidneys. The Environmental Protection Agency calls the metal a probable human carcinogen.

Under US federal guidelines, small children shouldn't have more than 6 micrograms of lead a day from candy. For adults, the limit is higher. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn't have guidelines for cadmium in food. In all cases, the guidelines are just that: not enforceable regulations.
