Voluntary recalls

The voluntary recall of registered agvet chemical products may be proposed or undertaken by a manufacturer or supplier at any time for a variety of reasons. A voluntary recall should be considered as a risk mitigation activity. It may occur in response to an identified manufacturing quality or other issue related to specific batches of a chemical product.

The APVMA is now publishing details of voluntary recall notifications it receives, details of notifications will be shown below.
