In late October last year, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) released an iOS app to track products that had been recalled from Australian stores because of safety concerns. Nine months later, Android owners are also getting some love, with the app now available through Google Play.
Like the iOS version, you can use the app to report safety concerns about products you have ourchased, as well as checking on the status of individual goods. Commercial retailers shouldn’t ever be selling recalled products, but it’s something to consider if you’re buying second-hand. ACCC Recalls Australia is a free download for Android devices. A mobile-specific version of the ACCC’s Recalls site is also under development.
