Eight milk varieties sold in Victoria and southern NSW recalled amid fears they may contain cleaning solution

By Country News

Eight varieties of milk sold in Victoria and southern NSW have been recalled amid fears they may contain cleaning solution.

Dairy company Lactalis Australia recalled the one-litre Coles, Pauls, REV and PhysiCAL branded milk on Thursday, saying they may contain ‘‘an amount of food grade dairy cleaning solution’’.

Available for sale in Coles, Woolworths, IGA and other retailers, the bad batch has best before dates from June 25 to June 28 and the milk may have yellow colouring and/or a chemical taste, the company said.

In its own statement, Coles said it had sold the milk across Victoria and southern parts of NSW including Albury, Deniliquin, Lavington and Tocumwal.

Consumers with the affected products should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Anyone with questions about the recall should get in touch with the customer service team on 1800676961.

Lactalis Australia has identified the source of the contamination and said it had taken the necessary steps to address it and prevent any recurrence of this problem in the future.
