Milk sold in major supermarkets across NSW is being recalled due to contamination fears.
Specific batches of Dairy Farmers full cream milk in one and three-litre quantities are subject to an immediate recall after Lion Dairy and Drinks (LDD) discovered there was potential E. coli contamination.
Three-litre full cream white milk with a use-by date of February 24 and one-litre bottles with a use-by date of February 25 are being removed from the market and anyone who has either of the products is urged to dispose of it.
The recall affects the particular batches of milk manufactured at the LDD dairy plant at Penrith.
It was then distributed to Coles, Woolworths and IGA across NSW as well as some independent outlets such as cafes and convenience stores, LDD said.
