    Product Safety Recalls Australia

    This site contains information about Australian product safety recalls.

    Voluntary safety-related recalls are the responsibility of the supplier.The Minister for Competition Policy and Consumer Affairs (the Australian Government's consumer affairs spokesperson) does have the power to order a compulsory recall of a product if it will or may cause injury to a person and where it appears that the supplier has not taken satisfactory action to prevent the goods from causing injury.

    This is set up by categories, lots of info!

    Food Standards & Recalls


    FSANZ coordinates and monitors food recalls in Australia. Recalls occur as a result of consultation between state and territory government and a sponsor (usually the food product's manufacturer or importer).

    In New Zealand, food recalls are coordinated by the Ministry for Primary Industries.
    If you are a food business looking to undertake a food recall in Australia contact the FSANZ Recall Coordinator on 02 6271 2610 (9am-5pm, Monday-Friday) or 0412 166 965 (after hours).
    Please note: the information below applies only within Australia.
    What is a food recall?

    A food recall removes food that may pose a health or safety risk from distribution, sale and consumption.
    A food recall may occur because of a report or complaint from manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, government and consumers. It may also occur as a result of a food business conducting internal testing and auditing.
    Food recalls can be at the trade or consumer level.
    A food withdrawal, which is different from a food recall, removes food from the supply chain for reasons other than protection of public health and safety, for example, if the food is labelled as 200 grams but weighs only 150 grams.
