Reports say the milk was properly labelled and included a warning.

The young boy was rushed to an emergency department in October 2014 and was transferred to a medical centre two days later.

According to The Herald Sun, 'the coroner said evidence indicated the little boy died on October 13 from a rare and severe complication of E. coli infection, called haemolytic-uraemic syndrome.'

“I find on the balance of probabilities that (the) death was most likely linked to the consumption of unpasteurised milk,” she said.
