Dana McCauley Minister met with alcohol lobby before pregnancy warning label sent back for review. (18 June 2020)
Food Minister Richard Colbeck met twice with alcohol industry lobbyists, including a major political donor, before a ministerial forum he chairs sent the independent regulator’s proposed mandatory pregnancy warning label back for review. Senator Colbeck met with the industry representatives in February and March after Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) recommended the label, with red and black lettering stating “HEALTH WARNING: Any amount of alcohol can harm your baby”, be printed on alcohol bottles.
