Lion Dairy & Drinks (Lion) is undertaking a milk recall of a number of products manufactured from their WA dairy site following routine testing which showed a microbial count in excess of their quality standards.
The recall has seen hundreds of thousands of litres of milk be recalled from shelves across WA.
Some coliforms, a type of bacteria, can cause illness in people, especially young children, the elderly, and those who have a weakened immune system, causing gastrointestinal problems including cramping and diarrhoea.
Additional to the Pura, Masters and Farmers Union brands that Lion produces, Coles has issued a recall on its one-litre cartons of fresh full cream and 98% fat free hilo milk with a February 6 expiry.
The products impacted by this milk recall are:
