A dairy plant in Turkey was shut down after a video emerged of a worker bathing in a tub full of milk, India Today reports.
Notably, a Twitter user @nedenttoldu posted a video on 5 November that showed a Turkish dairy plant worker bathing in a milk-filled tub.
He is seen using a mug to pour milk over him in the dairy plant that is situated in the Central Anatolian province of Konya, Turkey. A person named Ugur Turgut shot the video and shared it on his Tiktok account. As per the report, both the persons have been arrested by the police.
The video sparked outrage as it quickly went viral on multiple social medial platforms. Authorities have issued a fine on the dairy plant and have also shut it down due to human health risk.
Turgut, however, claimed that Sayar took bath in a mixture of water and cleaning material and not milk, contrary to what is seen in the video.
Ali Ergin, head of the Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry in Konya, has stated that an investigation has been initiated regarding this matter. Moreover, a complaint has been filed against the company whereas the concerned authorities plan to permanently close down the plant.
The dairy owners, however, stated that the video was an attempt to defame their company and added that the liquid in the video was actually used to wash their boilers.
