52 children fall ill after consuming milk in mid-day meal; Lucknow DM orders probe

Lucknow: Over 52 children of a government primary school in Lucknow have fallen ill and landed in hospital on Wednesday after drinking adulterated milk served to them under the mid-day meal scheme here. While most of the students have been discharged from the hospital, district administration has ordered a magisterial probe into the matter.

The incident took place today morning when children at Arya Bazar school in Lucknow's Cantonment area were served milk. According to officials, all the children, who were taken ill, were rushed to Cantonment hospital for treatment.

"34 children have been discharged after first aid and the rest are also recovering fast, " said Lucknow's district magistrate Raj Shekhar. He said he has ordered a probe by City Magistrate into the matter and sought a report within three days.

As per reports, government owned Parag dairy on Wednesday morning supplied 12,000 milk pouches of 200ml each to NGO Akshay Patra for distribution among school children as part of mid-day meal scheme.

"The milk, which was collected today morning, was duly pasteurised by boiling it to 90°C and then chilling it to 4°C before packaging it into small pouches.The problem did not crop up for all 12,000 pouches but for a specific school which is a matter of investigation, " said chief development officer (CDO), Lucknow Yogesh Kumar.

Hospital officials said all children were out of danger.

Notably, authorities had included milk to be served with Mid Day Meal on Wednesdays.
