Raw unpasteurised drinking milk from Central Hawke's Bay producers Lindsay Farm is being recalled following a detection ofCampylobacter.Lindsay Farm is a registered provider of raw milk.

The recall affects Lindsay Farm brand drinking milk with use by dates of25.07.21, 27.07.21, 28.07.21, 29.07.21 and 30.07.21, and lot numbers 2107, 2307, 2407, 2507 and 2607. The affected product is sold in the Hawke's Bay region at 8 registered depots and via home deliveries. The product is sold in 2-litre plastic bottles.

Campylobacterbacteria can cause severe gastrointestinal illness in people, and can be particularly serious in young people, the elderly, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems.

Lindsay Farm brand Organic Raw Milk (unpasteurised) recall

"If you have any of the recalled product, throw it out or return it to your supplier, or heat to 70°C and hold at this temperature for one minute. If you don't have a thermometer, heat the milk until it nearly reaches a boil (or scald the milk) before drinking it.

"Raw milk is inherently more risky than pasteurised milk because the process of pasteurisation kills harmful bacteria. You can get sick from consuming raw milk. If you have health concerns after drinking the product, seek medical advice.

"Campylobactersymptoms include muscle pain, headache and fever followed by watery or bloody diarrhoea, stomach pain and nausea. Symptoms typically develop 2 to 5 days after infection and last between 3 to 7 days."

In people with weakened immune systems, such as those with a blood disorder, with AIDS, or receiving chemotherapy,Campylobacteroccasionally spreads to the bloodstream and causes a life-threatening infection.

Human campylobacteriosis is a notifiable disease in New Zealand. That means any cases must be reported to public health authorities.
