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 (www.recalls.gov.au).

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.

Recently changed in this version

The Search has been improved so that it now works across a number of fields.
A problem where some of the labels did not appear correctly on some handsets has been fixed.

    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.

    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.

    Tried using on Samsung Galaxy S3 & S4 and the font size is sooo small it's unreadable. It's way smaller than shown in the example pics. Please adjust font size.

    Works great on my phone but it isn't supported on my Nexus 7. Can you please update this in the future.

    Searching is limited, the description for one item says "see attached spreadsheet", the button labels are hidden, & it doesn't use Android design standards
