Tempo Foods has recalled some milk products stocked at Coles, Woolworths, and independent grocers across NSW and VIC.

The recall is due to microbial (E. coli) contamination.

The products being recalled are the two-litre full cream, light 2.5%, and skim 0% milk products with use-by dates from 31 October to 2 November.

What is E. coli?

E. coli is short for Escherichia coli, a bacteria in the human gut. While most E. coli is harmless, there are specific strains that can cause illness.

Minced meat, unpasteurised milk, salad leaves, and sprouted seeds have a higher risk of contamination from harmful E. coli bacteria than other foods.

Milk recalled? What to do

If you have purchased any of the Tempo Foods milks you can return them to the shop where you bought them for a full refund.

If you have consumed any of these products and have health concerns, seek medical advice.
