Aldi, 7-Eleven Recall Full Cream Milk Products Over E-Coli Fears
Aldi and 7-Eleven have issued recalls on some of their full cream milk products over fears they have been contaminated with e.coli.
On Friday, Aldi recalled its Farmdale Full Cream 3 Litre Milk which was available for sale in the ACT and at some NSW stores.
The affected batch had a best before date of February 25 2020, the supermarket giant said.
"Customers should return the recalled product to the place of purchase, or contact ALDI STORES PTY LTD below, for a full refund," it said in a statement.
"Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice."

7-Eleven also issued a recall on Friday of its own brand of 2L full cream milk, which was available for sale at multiple stores in both NSW and the ACT.
The affected products had a use-by date of February 24, 2020.
Customers have been told to return the recalled product to the place of purchase or contact 7-Eleven for a full refund.
The NSW Food Authority warned that products contaminated with E. coli may cause illness if consumed.
Friday's recalls come just one day after some Dairy Farmers 1 Litre and 3 Litre full cream milk products were also recalled.
The products, sold at major supermarkets across NSW including Coles, Woolworths, IGA and various independent stores, were also recalled because of a potential e.coli contamination.
The manufacturer of the milk, Lion Dairy & Drinks, issued a warning for customers to not drink some one-litre and three-litre versions of its Full Cream White Milk, due to "potential microbial contamination".
The recall was issued for three-litre Full Cream White Milk with a use-by date of 24/2/2020, and one-litre Full Cream White Milk with a use-by of 25/2/2020.
"This is a food safety issue. As this may cause illness if the product is consumed, Lion Dairy & Drinks immediately moved to recall the products from market," the company said on Thursday.
