Food Surveillance News

(August 2017)

Food Surveillance News keeps consumers informed about food surveillance activities and includes the results of national food surveys such as the Australian Total Diet Study, background information on recalls, imported foods, and other food monitoring and surveillance activities in Australia and overseas. FSANZ works collaboratively on Food Surveillance News with the states and territories and New Zealand.

In 2012, FSANZ changed how we published Food Surveillance News. Surveys and news items are now published individually. Subscribers will be alerted to publication of the surveys and other items as they are published through a notification email.

You can subscribe to surveillance alerts.

FSANZ works closely with the states and territories in Australia on surveillance activities.

Food recalls

Foods which may pose a health and safety risk to consumers are removed from distribution. A recall may be instigated by manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, medical practitioners, government agencies and consumers. FSANZ is the coordinating agency for all food recalls in Australia and the Ministry for Primary Industries is the responsible authority in New Zealand.
