Lion Dairy and Drinks has recall of some of its Dairy Farmers full cream white milk products due to potential microbial contamination (E. coli).
This is a food safety issue.
The company immediately moved to recall the products from market as this may cause illness if the product is consumed.

There have been no consumer complaints to date regarding these products.
This recall does not impact other Dairy Farmers dairy products made in New South Wales or in other states.
"Lion Dairy and Drinks is committed to the highest standards of quality and safety and consumers and customers can be assured that we are undertaking a thorough investigation and will put in place steps to mitigate it happening again," a statement from the company said.
