That recall related to 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.

7-Eleven stores are also recalling their 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,’ 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.’
E. coli can cause diarrhoea, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, lasting 5-10 days, urinary tract infection, and pneumonia.
Young children, the elderly and people with a weak immune system are the most at risk of contracting E. coli.
The bottles have been sold in Woolworths, Coles and IGA in New South Wales and independent grocers and are being recalled over fears they contain E. coli
Symptoms to be aware of include dehydration, reduced urination, lethargy, pale skin, yellow skin and eyes, puffiness from fluid retention and seizures.
There are several ways one may get infected such as contact with contaminated foods, contact with contaminated water like at local pools, or personal contact with someone who is sick, and animals who carry the bacteria.
Treatment is based on what area of your body is infected but staying hydrated with water, juice or cordial is the best solution.
Symptoms of E. coli to look out for
- reduced urination
- pale skin (due to anaemia)
- yellow skin and eyes (due to jaundice)
- puffiness from fluid retention
- seizures (fits)
