Parmalat recalls sanitiser-contaminated Pura Milk

Posted by Nicole Eckersley on 10th June 2011

Parmalat has recalled its one-litre plastic bottles of Pura Milk full cream with a use-by of 15 June, after the company said it believed the batch had been contaminated with “a small amount” of food-grade sanitiser.

The milk was distributed in NSW and the ACT only, in IGA and Foodworks supermarkets, service stations (such as Mobil and Caltex), hospitals and corner stores in metro and regional areas.

The company said that the contamination “would result in the product having a metallic taste” and would therefore be “easily detectable” if consumed, but no information was made available about the type of sanitiser involved.

Customers in the ACT and NSW should return this product to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.
