Businesses recalling food should also consider the need to advertise in ethnic, regional and community newspapers.

It is possible to place several advertisements simultaneously – an advertising agency or media service is best placed to organise this. Check a telephone directory or the internet for listings under ‘Advertising agencies’ or ‘Media information and/or services’ for companies that can help with:

  • placing one/multiple advertisements
  • acquiring a short-term, emergency 1800 number.
