ACCC recalls counterfeit Toyota brake pads, containing asbestos

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission  (ACCC) has issued an unprecedented recall on counterfeit brake pads that contain asbestos.

The bogus brake pads — which are supplied in what appears to be genuine Toyota packaging and are designed to fit more than 500,000 HiLux utes and Hiace vans on Australian roads — were bought online by an independent workshop.
