Food complaints



Found something strange in your food?

Thankfully, problems like this are uncommon. However if they do occur, make sure you don't eat the food and report the problem to your local food enforcement authority.

You'll be asked to provide your name, address and phone number. The size and package type. Package codes and date, name and location of the store and the date you purchased it.

Remember to keep the original packaging and if relevant, the foreign object. It is also important to refrigerate any uneaten portion of the food.

Contact details for each state and territory food enforcement agency are available at w-w-w dot food standards dot gov dot au forward slash enforcement.
