King Island Dairy milk products are under recall after a possible E.Coli Contamination. 

The recall specifically includes: King Island Fresh Milk Products Reduced Fat Milk in 1L and 2L plastic bottles and King Island Fresh Milk Products Cream in 300 mL and 600 mL plastic bottles. The recall information is issued via the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

All products being recalled were sold in bakeries, small independent supermarkets, cafes and King Island Hospital on King Island, Tasmania. If you’re not sure if your local store sold the product, return to the retailer for more information.

The recall is issued due to possible E. coli contamination. E.coli is a serious bacteria, and can cause severe intestinal illness. Anyone who has drank the milk or cream and is concerned about their health, whether you’re having symptoms or not, should seek medical attention.

If you have any of the products mentioned in the recall, do not use them. Return the milk or cream to the place where you purchased it immediately for a refund.

This recall is coordinated by Food Standards Australia New Zealand.
