There are fears that the dairy products are infected with E. coli and can cause disease if consumed.

“Our milk supplier informed us of a problem with a range of their milk products in NSW and the ACT, including 7-Eleven 2 Liter whole milk with a USE BUYING DATE of 24/02/2020,” the company said on its website.

“Customers who have purchased this product are advised not to drink it and return it to the place of purchase for a refund.”

It is after the popular Dairy Farmers milk bottles were recalled for fear that they too were infected with E. coli.

Lion Dairy & Drinks recalls its Dairy Farmers 1L Full Cream white milk products with an expiration date on 25/02/2020 and its Dairy Farmers 3L Full Cream white milk products with an expiration date 24/02/2020.

The bottles were sold in Woolworths, Coles and IGA supermarkets in New South Wales.

E. coli can cause diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting for 5-10 days, urinary tract infection and pneumonia.

Customers who have purchased the product are advised not to consume it and to discard it immediately.

“Lion Dairy & Drinks strives for the highest standards of quality and safety,” they said.

“Consumers and customers can be sure that we will conduct a thorough investigation and take steps to prevent this.”

The company will provide customers with full refunds.

This recall does not affect other dairy products from Dairy Farmers made in New South Wales or in other states.

Young children, the elderly and people with a weak immune system are most at risk for E. coli.

Symptoms to watch out for are dehydration, decreased urination, lethargy, pale skin, yellow skin and eyes, puffiness due to fluid retention and epileptic seizures.

There are various ways in which someone can become infected, such as contact with contaminated food, contact with contaminated water, such as in local swimming pools, or personal contact with someone who is sick and animals that carry the bacteria.

The treatment is based on which part of your body is infected, but staying hydrated with water, juice or savory is the best solution.

Symptoms of E. coli to watch out for

  • dehydration
  • reduced urination
  • idleness
  • pale skin (due to anemia)
  • yellow skin and eyes (due to jaundice)
  • bags by retaining moisture
  • coincidence
