Authorities have announced an urgent milk recall on a popular type of milk sold at Woolworths, IGA and other stores in Victoria.
The recall is due to ‘a processing failure associated with pasteurization’, which could lead to serious food safety issues. As a result, customers have been warned to check their fridges and not consume the milks in question.
The following products have been recalled:
* Gippsland Jersey Full Cream Milk Batch 1907033 Use by 29/07/2019
* Gippsland Jersey Light Milk Batch 1907034 Use by 29/07/2019
Says Food Standards Australia: ‘Gippsland Jersey is conducting a recall of Gippsland Jersey Full Cream and Light Milk 2 Litre Bottles.
‘The product has been available for sale at various retail stores including some Woolworths, IGA, Foodworks, convenience stores and corner stores in Victoria.’
These milk varieties have been recalled.

‘The recall is due to a processing failure associated with pasteurization. Milk that is not pasteurized according to the standard may be associated with food borne illness and decreased shelf life.’
Food Standards Australia adds: ‘Do not consume the product. Customers should return the products to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.’
