Product Recall Incidents in Australia
In Australia, due to our well developed legal system and pro-consumer legislation in place, both consumers and businesses are well placed to obtain reimbursement for product recall incidents.
There have already been 300 official product recalls required in 2020, up to August, by Australian government bodies for products ranging from bicycles, beer, caravans, seafood sticks, biscuits, baby carriers, inflatable pools, bean bags, vehicles and many more.
With Food and beverage industry alone averaging 63 product recall claims a year in the past ten years, it makes sense to review this exposure.
