Milk sold at Woolworths, Coles and IGA is being recalled, amid fears of an E. coli contamination.
Lion Dairy & Drinks is recalling 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 which was made and sold in New South Wales due to potential microbial contamination (E. coli).
