A third variety of milk has been recalled over E. coli fears just one day after some dairy products were pulled from shop shelves across NSW

Any customers who purchased the milk are urged not to drink it and return it to their local store for a refund.

On Thursday, Dairy Farmers’ one-litre Full Cream white milk with a use by date of February 25 and 3L Full Cream white milk with a use by date of February 24 were recalled due to fears of an E. coli contamination.

7-Eleven has also removed the Dairy Farmers products. 

Anyone who has consumed the milk and feels ill should seek medical attention immediately.

Customers with the product should dispose of it and contact Lion Dairy & Drinks Consumer Enquiries Centre on 1800 677 852 for a full refund.
