Indigenous Affairs Senator Nigel Scullion has voiced the need to restrict the sales of Vegemite in remote Indigenous Aboriginal communities due to concerns it is being used to make alcohol.

“Addiction of any type is a concern but communities, especially where alcohol is banned, [we] must work to ensure home brewing of this type does not occur,” Senator Scullion said.

Reporter Ahmed Yussuf explores the impact of this claim and the significance of fact checking within the media.
