Products with a use by date of 24/2/20 are affected by the recall.

On Friday, Aldi recalled its Farmdale Full Cream 3 Litre Milk which was available for sale in the ACT and at some NSW and Victorian stores. 'Any consumers that have actually bought this item are suggested not to beverage it, and also return it to the location of acquisition for a reimbursement.'.

Minor illnesses such as diarrhoea and sickness can be contracted as a result of E. coli contamination, while urinary tract infections are also common.

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.

The milk is also sold in IGA and some independent outlets such as milk bars, cafes and convenience stores.

Anyone who has purchased the above products was urged not to consume the product, as it could cause illness, and to dispose of the milk immediately, before calling Lion Dairy & Drinks' consumer enquiry centre on 1800 677 852 for a full refund.

The company apologised for any inconvenience and are committed to the highest standards of quality.

7-Eleven has recalled their own brand of full cream milk.

'Customers can be assured that we continue to thoroughly investigate and will put in place steps to mitigate it happening again, ' a press release said.

"We encourage anyone who has consumed the Dairy Farmers 3L or 1L full cream white milk product with the respective use by dates and made and sold in New South Wales and who feels unwell to seek medical advice as required".

Symptoms to be aware of include dehydration, reduced urination, lethargy, pale skin, yellow skin and eyes, puffiness from fluid retention and seizures.
