E. coli milk crisis: ANOTHER brand is urgently recalled from 7-Eleven due to fears it could kill

Another variety of milk has been recalled over fears there is an E. coli contamination. 

7-Eleven stores are recalling their branded 2L Full Cream Milk that has been available in stores throughout New South Wales and the ACT with the use by date of 24/02/2020.

There are fears the milk products are contaminated with E. coli and may cause illness if they are consumed. 

‘Our milk supplier has advised us of an issue with a range of their milk products in NSW and the ACT, including 7-Eleven 2 Litre Full Cream Milk with a USE BUY DATE of 24/02/2020 and Dairy Farmers 1 Litre Full Cream Milk with a USE BUY DATE of 25/02/2020 and Dairy Farmers 3 Litre Full Cream Milk with a USE BUY DATE of 24/02/2020,’ the company said on its website.

‘Any customers who have purchased this product are advised not to drink it, and return it to the place of purchase for a refund.’

It comes after the popular Dairy Farmers milk bottles were recalled after fears they too were contaminated with E. coli. 

Lion Dairy & Drinks are undertaking a recall of 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.

The bottles have been sold in Woolworths, Coles and IGA supermarkets in New South Wales.   

E. coli can cause diarrhoea, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, lasting 5-10 days, urinary tract infection, and pneumonia.

Shoppers who purchased the product are urged not to consume it and dispose of the product.  

More to come.
