Multiple milk products have been recalled amid fears they may contain cleaning solution.

Lactalis Australia is recalling the contaminated milk products, which have been available for sale at Coles, Woolworths, IGA and independent stores in Victoria and parts of southern NSW.

The dairy company issued an urgent message to Australians on Thursday urging all customers who had purchased the company’s milk products recently to check their products and the date of purchase.

“The milk products may have a yellowish colouring and/or metallic chemical taste,” the company said in a statement.

The affected varieties are: Pauls branded Smarter White (date marked June 25, 26, 27) Full Fat Cream (June 26, 27), PhysiCAL Skim (June 27), PhysiCAL Low Fat (June 26) and Rev Low Fat (June 28); and Coles branded Full Cream (June 25, 26), Lite (June 25, 26) and Skim (June 25) .


Anyone who purchased the affected products is urged to stop using it immediately and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Lactalis Australia said anyone worried about their health should seek medical advice.

“We encourage anyone with questions about the recall to get in touch with our customer service team on 1800 676 961. We apologise for any inconvenience,” the company said.
