Unilever Australasia - Consumer alert counterfeit OMO seizure

Unilever Australasia today praised the efforts of the NSW Police (Police) in seizing over 33 tonnes of counterfeit OMO laundry powder in Sydney.

The Police seizure followed a lengthy investigation over several months targeting the importation and sale of quantities of the fake white laundry powder in Sydney.

Unilever Australia would like to reassure all its OMO consumers that the product currently being distributed and sold in a range of pack sizes and marked as “Made in New Zealand” is genuine and guaranteed to perform in line with their expectations. Any consumer who has purchased the counterfeit product in nine kilo square buckets is advised to return the product to the retailer and request a full refund.
