Food recalls protect the consumers from products that may cause illness, injury or death. Food recalls may also be used to prevent unsuitable food being eaten.
Specific requirements relating to the recall of food are outlined in the Animal Products Act 1999, the Food Act 2014 and the Wine Act 2003. It is a legal requirement to inform the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) about recalls. Please contact MPI as soon as possible on 0800 00 83 33 and ask for the Food Compliance team. It is best to discuss the situation as MPI can assist in determining the need to recall.
