Lactalis Australia recalls more milk products over E.coli contamination
Dairy company Lactalis Australia and supermarket Coles are conducting another round of milk recalls this week due to E.coli contamination.
Lactalis has recalled eight milk products including Pauls, Rev, Guppy and 7-Eleven which have been available for sale at Coles, Woolworths, IGA and other retailers across VIC, as well as some retailers and food service outlets in southern NSW.
Coles Supermarkets recalled its own brand Fresh Full Cream Milk 2 Litres for the same reason. The product has been available for sale at all VIC Coles Express sites and four Coles Express stores in southern NSW.
The move comes a week after Lactalis Australia pulled eight milk products from shelves over potential contamination with a factory cleaning solution. The affected milk was reported to have yellow colouring and/or a chemical taste.
Symptoms of E. coli infection typically begin three or four days after consuming a contaminated product and can include diarrhea, abdominal cramping, nausea and vomiting.
