Woolworths are dealing with some brand damaging issues...
Woolworths was fined $3.057 million in the Federal Court for Australian Consumer Law breaches over safety of house brand products sold in Woolworths, Big W and Masters stores.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) took legal action for misleading and deceptive conduct and false or misleading representations about the safety of five non food products.
The ACCC alleged Woolworths continued to sell and did not recall some products knowing about the potential danger and injuries.

This was in addition to, Woolworths and Coles both issuing recalls for 24 salad products after 28 people fell ill with salmonella poisoning, with the problem was traced to a supplier in Victoria.
