Urgent recall of popular milk brand sold across Australia amid fear it contains deadly bacteria
An urgent recall has been issued for a popular milk after several products were contaminated with a deadly bacteria.
Kenilworth Dairies’ full cream milk in the three, two and one litre sizes with a best before date of March 15, 2021, have been recalled across Queensland due to E. coli contamination.
Food Standards Australia has renewed its urgent recall of the brand after authorities first issued an alert on March 5.
‘Food products contaminated with E.coli may cause illness if consumed,’ the recall notice states.
‘Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.’
The affected milk products were sold at independent grocers and the Kenilworth Dairies Cafe in Queensland between March 1 and 5.
E. coli is a bacteria that can cause diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps usually three to four days after being exposed to contaminated water or food.
