A Central Hawke's Bay farm's raw milk has been recalled.

Lindsay Farm is a registered provider of raw milk.

The recall affects Lindsay Farm brand organic raw drinking milk with a use by date between 6 March 2021 and up to and including 21 March 2021.

The affected product is sold in the Hawke’s Bay region at seven registered depots and home deliveries. The product is sold in 2-litre plastic bottles.

Campylobacter bacteria 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.

New Zealand Food Safety’s national services compliance manager, Melinda Sando, says people with Lindsey Farm organic raw drinking milk at home should visit MPI’s recall website to check if it is among the batches of recalled product.

“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.”

Sando says that raw milk is 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.”

In people with weakened immune systems, such as those with a blood disorder, Campylobacter occasionally spreads to the bloodstream and causes a life-threatening infection.

Human campylobacteriorsis (Campylobacter) is a notifiable disease in New Zealand, meaning any cases must be reported to public health authorities.

Shares of Saputo Inc. SAP, -0.63% dropped 2.76% to C$33.15 Monday, in what proved to be an all-around negative trading session for the Canadian market.
