A source at the organization, who asked not to be named, said that on July 29, 2018, and according to information from the Criminal Investigation Department and the Royal Environmental Protection Administration, “21 tons of expired baby milk, for babies between six months and one year old, was seized from a farm in Amman, noting that the powder was transferred from its original packaging into nylon bags, without any information on the bags.”
