A Lostwithiel dairy has withdrawn milk and cream in a contamination scare.

Public health officials say Trewithen Dairy told them a cleaning chemical had got into supplies on Monday morning.

They insist there is no risk - because it is so dilluted.

MD Bill Clarke said: "We have become aware that there has been an unfortunate error at one of our farms and a small amount of cleaning product has entered an amount of our product range.

"Products affected are whole, semi and skimmed milk dated 25th and 26th August. Also liquid cream and clotted cream dated 26th and 27th August only.

"We are not aware of any danger to health due to the vast dilution of the liquid. However, we are taking all possible steps and precautions and have reacted immediately with an instant withdrawal and replacement for products that may have been affected.

"The precise traceability systems we have in place at the dairy measn we know exactly which customers have received these products and are now collecting and replacing anything at risk. The Environmental Health Officer and Food Standards Agency have been informed and are supportive of our actions.

"If any members of the public have purchased Trewithen Dairy products with the above dates over the last two days and would like a replacement, they should not hesitate in returning them to their retailer who will immediately provide a replacement.

"We apologise profusely for this unfortunate error and can confirm that this issue only applies to the products stated above. Our yoghurt, butter, creme fraiche and buttermilk are not affected."
