UNB . Dhaka | Update:

Researchers have found traces of detergent in pasteurised milk produced by five companies.

They companies are - Pran, Milk Vita, Igloo, Aarong, and Farm Fresh.

"We tested pasteurised and non-pasteurised raw milk produced by these companies and found detergent and antibiotics in them," professor ABM Faruque, director of Biomedical Research Centre, told a press conference at Dhaka University on Tuesday.

Dhaka University's Pharmacy department and Biomedical Research Centre jointly conducted the tests.
