Canberra Milk is recalling of some of its full cream fresh milk products in the ACT and neighbouring NSW towns due to fears fragments of faulty caps may cause people to choke.

The Canberra Milk Full Cream fresh 1L, 500ml and 300ml products were manufactured between Monday 22 October 2018 and Thursday 1 November 2018 at its Griffith dairy site in the ACT.

The company says the recall is a precautionary measure, following routine internal testing which showed a faulty seal on some of the black caps. The broken parts of those faulty caps may be found in the milk and may have the potential to be a choking hazard, if ingested.

Canberra Milk says consumers should dispose of the products and contact its Consumer Enquiry Centre on 1800 677 852 to get a full refund.

It says a very small number have been impacted but if anyone consumes the milk and feels unwell they should see a doctor.

The impacted products were distributed for sale within grocery, convenience and food service outlets within the ACT and also in the neighbouring NSW towns of Queanbeyan, Jerrabomberra, Goulburn, Eden, Bombala, Thredbo, Bega, Wagga Wagga, Junee, Cootamundra, Young, Hay, Tumbarumba and Batlow.

“We believe this is an isolated incident impacting only the production of products made with this specific faulty black cap. This recall does not impact any other Canberra Milk or CCFA product including the Canberra Milk Full Cream 2L and 3L products with the same use by dates,” Canberra Milk says.

It says there have not been any consumer complaints to date about any of the products.
