More milk recalled over E. coli fears
Victoria and parts of New South Wales have been hit with a second milk recall in a week due to possible E. coli contamination.
Lactalis Australia has recalled a number of 1 L and 2 L milk products that have been sold at Coles, Woolworths, IGA and other retailers across Victoria, as well as outlets in southern NSW including the Murray, Riverina and Western Districts of NSW. Contaminated milk may not have a difference taste, smell or sight, and may cause illness if consumed, the company warned.
Coles has also recalled its own brand Fresh Full Cream 2 L Milk sold at Coles Express sites in Victoria and four sites in NSW. It stated milk at Coles Supermarkets is not affected, as it is produced by a different supplier.
Affected products have use-by dates of 2 July 2019 and include:
- 7-Eleven Lite Milk 2 L Bottle
- Gippy Full Cream Milk 2 L Bottle
- Gippy Lite Milk 2 L Bottle
- Maxi Foods Lite Milk 2 L Bottle
- Pauls Professional Cafe Crema Milk 2 L Bottle
- Pauls Smarter White 2% Fat Milk 2 L Bottle
- Rev Low Fat Milk 2 L Bottle
- Rev Low Fat Milk 1 L Carton
This follows Lactalis Australia's recall of eight milk varieties on 13 June over concerns they were contaminated with cleaning fluid.
Consumers are being encouraged to return the affected products to the place of purchase for a full refund, and anyone concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
