At the press conference held on 30-07-2013, GMOA insisted that the Industrial Technology Institute (ITI) of Sri Lanka, which tested samples of imported milk powder, had detected Dicyandiamide (DCD) in all of them, but the Health authorities had not taken any action to ban those products.
GMOA requested the health minister to ban imported milk powder and ask the multinational milk product companies to pay compensation to the people and children who consumed their products.
