Get the latest on Australian product recalls! The Recalls Australia app will help you stay on top of the latest recall information, especially when you’re on the move. The app enables you to search the national recalls database by product name or category. It also includes a function to report an unsafe product, including a photograph (if relevant) to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Developed by the ACCC, the app draws on information contained on the Recalls Australia website (

IMPORTANT: Please note that the app can take a while to download and open the first time you use it, as it downloads the recalls database to your device. You may prefer to do this when connected to a wireless network rather than via your 3G connection. Once you’ve opened the app the first time, it only downloads details of new recalls (thus saving you bandwidth) and so opens immediately.

    Extra small font size on this version. Too hard to view. Please return to previous font size. Galaxy s4

    Great app, useful information, love the ability to have this info in your pocket. One negative; the font is way too small to read (SGN3). Please fix.

    Needs UPC/EAN barcode scanner to check products against recalls. App not optimised for large dpi screens like Galaxy S4.

    Text too small. Useless.

    On my S2 it was fine, but on my Galaxy S4 the text is tiny, so I don't really use this app any more.

    Can't read the information on S3 unless using binoculars. Font is ridiculously small, no option to change font size Uninstalled due to lack of usability on phone.
