  • Whilst I’m in Vic, I really appreciate how social media can alert us to product recalls far quicker than any other medium.

  • I’m afraid this would make me wary of buying mince from that store again. I wonder how they found out about it. Makes you wonder if anyone has cooked and eaten the product already
