All pasteurised milk including Pran, Milk Vita, Arong - available in the kitchen market for consumers across the country - are adulterated, said a report.  The researchers found coliform bacteria and antibiotic in the milk.

Pharmacy Department of Dhaka University and Biomedical Research Centre jointly tested the samples of the milks and unveiled its report before public at Pharmacy Lecture Theatre in the university on Tuesday.

According to the report, 'Solids-not-fat' was not found at the desired level in any milk of the seven samples of milk including Pran, Milk Vita and Arong. 

Earlier, a government survey found lead and pesticides in milk and that the majority of raw and packed milk do not fulfill standard safety criteria.
