People in India may think twice before gulping down a glass of milk after the country’s food safety regulator found most samples collected in a survey were either diluted or adulterated with products including fertilizer, bleach, and detergent, Reuters reported January 10.

The study, conducted in January by the food safety and standards authority of India, found milk was adulterated with skimmed milk powder and glucose, or hydrogen peroxide, urea, and detergent. “Consumption of milk with detergent may cause health hazards and indicates lack of hygiene and sanitation in the milk handling,” the regulator said.
