Authorities have announced an urgent recall of Dairy Farmers milk from Coles, Woolworths and IGA due to possible E.coli contamination.
Lion Dairy & Drinks has pulled its Dairy Farmers 1L Full Cream white milk products with a use by date of 25/02/2020 and its Dairy Farmers 3L Full Cream white milk products with a use by date of 24/02/2020 from shelves.
The affected milks have been sold in Woolworths, Coles and IGA in NSW.
E. coli can cause serious illness to chose affected - symptoms include diarrhoea, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting and pneumonia.
Shoppers are warned to not consume these products and dispose of them immediately.
'Lion Dairy & Drinks is committed to the highest standards of quality and safety,' said the company.
'Consumers and customers can be assured that we are undertaking a thorough investigation and will put in place steps to mitigate it happening again.’
