Four brands of eggs and eight varieties of milk have been recalled from supermarkets across Victoria and NSW amid fears of contamination.
On Friday, the NSW Government’s Food Authority released an urgent recall on Country Fresh Eggs, Just Eggs (600g, cardboard box), Chefs Choice Free Range (700g, 30 pack tray), and Chefs Choice Cage Free (800g, 30 pack tray) due to a possible salmonella contamination.
The eggs have been available for sale at The Egg Basket in Kemps Creek and Flemington Markets in NSW. If you’re doing a quick check, look out for the use-by dates: 14th June 2019, 20th June 2019, 24th June 2019, 29th June 2019, 5th July 2019, and 9th July 2019. Alternatively, you can check individual eggs through the stamp eb24449 on its shell.
The Food Authority says salmonella symptoms start around six to 72 hours after the contaminated food has been eaten and symptoms include fever, headache, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.
On Thursday, national dairy company Lactalis Australia recalled eight varieties of Coles and Pauls branded milk. The products have been available in-store at Coles, Woolworth, and IGA in Victoria, three stores in New South Wales (Deniliquin, Lavington and Albury), and some petrol and convenience stores in the Murray, Riverina, and Western districts of NSW.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand says the recall is because of a food grade dairy cleaning solution contamination.
The recalled products:
Only one-litre bottles have been affected and may have a yellowish colouring and / or metallic chemical taste to it. If you reckon you have one of these in the fridge, either pour it out or you can head to its place of purchase and cop a full refund.
