Between August 2008 to August 2009, Sony Trading Pty Ltd, an Australian importer and distributor of food and beverages, imported banned mini jelly cup products containing konjac which can cause choking.

The jelly cup products were supplied to nine Asian grocery retailers in the Sydney metropolitan and Central Coast regions of New South Wales.

Sony Trading has been cooperative and has:

  • notified the retailers who had purchased the jelly cups and requested that they withdraw them from sale;
  • undertaken a full product recall and notification on 1 October 2009 through the Recalls Australia website, www. Recalls.gov.au; and
  • provided refunds to consumers.

To address the ACCC concerns, Sony Trading has also provided an Undertaking pursuant to section 87B of the TPA.
