A busy time for food recalls
The FSANZ Food Recall team was kept busy with back-to-back food incidents and 9 recalls in 7 days before Christmas last year.
Effective food recalls are essential to protecting public health and safety, with the latest recalls resulting in the successful removal of all unsafe food products from the shelves.
FSANZ has a national coordination role in food recalls and incidents and works with jurisdictional enforcement agencies and food businesses to ensure recalls are conducted effectively.
All food businesses are required to have a food recall plan in place. More information about food recalls, including the food recall protocol and a fplan template, is available on our website.
