ACCC recalls 'bath milk'

THE Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has recalled the "bath milk" that was implicated in a three-year-old's death this week.

ACCC deputy chairwoman Delia Rickard urged people not to drink Mountain View Farm Organic Bath Milk, which was recalled on Friday, or any other raw milks.

"Mountain View Farm Organic Bath Milk has been linked to a number of recent health concerns in young children after being used as a substitute for regular pasteurised milk," she said.

"If you have this product, do not drink it in any circumstances. Return it to the place of purchase for a full refund."

Australian Food Safety Information Council spokeswoman Lydia Buchtmann said unpasteurised milk posed serious health risks.

The sale of raw cow's milk for consumption is illegal. But the ACCC said people still consumed the product despite it being marketed as cosmetic milk.
