"We were getting regular complaints about various Amul milk products sold in the open market," said FDA designated officer Vineet Kumar.
The samples of Amul ghee, ice creams, fresh cream, badam shake, homogenized milk and standardized milk were taken for testing. All samples will be sent to regional testing laboratory for analysis, the officer said.
