Cadmium residues was detected in 5 (12.5%) and 6 (30 %) of examined (canned and un-canned milk powder) with a mean values of 0.08 ± 0.02 and 0.11 ± 0.02 ppm, the samples exceeded the permissible limit 2 (40%) and 3 (50%) respectively. Aluminium was detected in 3 (7.5%) and 5 (25 %) of examined (canned, and un-canned milk powder) with a mean values of 0.45 ± 0.12 and 0.37 ± 0.15 ppm, the samples exceeded the permissible limit 1(33.33%) and 4(80%) respectively. Tin was detected in 2 (5%) and 8 (40 %) of examined (canned, and un-canned milk powder) with a mean values of 26.8 ± 5.13 and 49.9 ± 5.50 ppm, respectively. All positive samples with in the permissible limit.
AFM1 was detected in 2 (5%) and 3 (15%) in examined milk powder (canned and un-canned) samples with a mean values of 0.033 ± 0.02 and 0.507 ± 0.21 ppb, the samples exceeded the permissible limit 0 (0%) and 3 (100%) respectively. AFM2 was detected in 1 (2.50 %) in examined milk powder (canned) samples with a mean values of 0.013 (ppb).and the positive samples whit in permissible limit.
