Researchers in Kenya have expressed concern about the high prevalence of milk contamination in the market as a result of improper handling and a lack of quality control.

The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) investigation that led to the warning found that around 50% of milk samples taken from the counties of Nakuru, Laikipia, and Nyandarua were tainted.

According to the research, 237 of the 493 milk samples examined for contamination included Pseudomonas spp., while 207 of the samples had evidence of Escherichia coli (E. coli).

E. coli strains are known to cause pneumonia, respiratory diseases, urinary tract infections, and other disorders, according to ILRI.
