In Australia, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) regulates therapeutic goods. The TGA carries out a range of assessment and monitoring activities to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of medicines available in Australia are of an acceptable standard for public health and safety.
The place to check out if a product recall is a rumour or not is on the Therapeutic Goods Administration website. All drug and medical device recall information is published on the SARA – System for Australian Recall Actions www.tga.gov.au/recall-actions
You can check based on the Current year recalls or All recalls from 2001 to the present.
If you’re in any doubt, speak to your GP at your next appointment.
