Andhra Pradesh Dairy Development Cooperative Federation Ltd.(APDDCF) is supplying Vijaya Vajra milk through the local anganwadis for pregnant women.
The sachet showed October as the month of processing which normally has a validity for three months. Meanwhile officials of ICDS (Integrated Child Development Services) state that it wasn't any animal remains but could be the residues of plastic waste that may have got mixed with milk during its processing and packaging at the dairy unit. But Rayadurgam villagers clearly state that it was the remains of a frog which was seen clearly and it had fragmented after it was poured into the vessel.
