Coles Express issued a recall of Coles Fresh Full Cream Milk 2 Litres due to E.coli fears 

Supermarket giant Coles has issued a third recall for their milk products in just two weeks due to E.coli fears.

Coles Express issued a recall of Coles Fresh Full Cream Milk 2 Litres on Tuesday amid fears of E.coli contamination.

Another batch was recalled for the same reason – and a third because of ‘an amount of food grade dairy cleaning solution’.

The milk was sold in all Victoria Coles Express stores, as well as southern New South Wales stores in Albury, Albury North, Deniliquin North and Tocumwal. 

The date marking on the bottle is July 2.

People are being urged to return the milk to their nearest store for a refund and to seek medical advice if they’re concerned. 

Another recall was made on June 20 after Lactalis Australia Pty Ltd pulled eight milk products off the shelves on Thursday due to a potential E. coli contamination. 

The affected products include the two-litre bottles of 7-Eleven Lite Milk, Gippy Full Cream Milk, Gippy Lite Milk, Maxi Foods Lite Milk, Pauls Professional Cafe Crema Milk, Pauls Smarter White 2% Fat, Rev Low Fat Milk and Rev Low Fat Milk 1L Carton. 

WHAT IS E. COLI?  

E. coli, or Escherichia coli, is bacteria that is usually found in human intestines.

Some strains of E. coli can be harmful to humans and are often the source of foodborne illnesses. 

Symptoms of a E. coli infection include nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea and fever.

All affected products have a use-by date of July 2. 

They are sold at Coles, Woolworths, IGA, and some food service venues across Victoria and parts of NSW.  

A recall on June 13 also included three varieties of Coles 1 litre Fresh Milk products due to potential contamination with cleaning solution for milk plant equipment.   

The products were only sold at Coles Express in Victoria, Deniliquin North, Tocumwal, Albury and Albury North, NSW.  

E. coli is a type of bacteria found in human intestines which can cause life-threatening illnesses.  

Symptoms of a E. coli infection include nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea and fever.
