​(September 2019)

On 10 July 2019 the Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt and the Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians, Senator the Hon Richard Colbeck asked FSANZ to look into the safety of caffeine powders and high caffeine content products. The Ministers also asked FSANZ to consider the need for appropriate warning labels and consumer safety information for these products.

A report, including recommendations for strengthening regulations and consumer warnings, was delivered to Ministers on 30 August 2019 for consideration.

FSANZ has worked closely with the Therapeutic Goods Administration and State and Territory regulatory authorities on this matter.
