A Cornish dairy where cleaning chemicals got into some milk and cream is asking shoppers to report products still on sale.

Trewithen's in Lostwithiel has withdrawn the affected batches.

Bosses are asking us to look out for Trewithen Dairy labelled and St Piran labelled whole, semi and skimmed milk dated 25th and 26th August and liquid cream and clotted cream dated 26th and 27th August only.
 
The company has released the following statement:

'The team at Trewithen Dairy has been working tirelessly for two full days contacting all retailers and distributors of these products to do all possible ensure they are withdrawn and replaced on the shelves. Consumers who are continually encouraged to return any bottles or cartons with these dates are immediately receiving replacements. If any consumers do still see these products however, with the relevant dates on them, for sale, please do contact Trewithen Dairy directly to let them know so that these retailers can be re-contacted.
 
Yesterday, Tuesday 19th August, Trewithen Dairy held a meeting with the Cornwall Council Environmental team and as a result the following points were concluded and the Food Standards Agency said the following:
 
"The cleaning fluid used would have been heavily diluted by the volume of milk when processed, so the level of any substances that may cause harm would be very low in milk bought by consumers. We believe it is very unlikely that anyone would become ill from drinking this milk, but if anyone notices anything unusual with the milk they have purchased they should not consume it."
 
Tests are being continually undertaken by both the Environmental Health team and Trewithen Dairy to confirm the nature and level of any chemicals present.
 
Trewithen Dairy would like to take this opportunity to reiterate that we are profusely sorry for this unfortunate error and stress that everything possible is currently being done to ensure that the public health is not in any way at risk.'
