Product recalls have received much media attention in recent years. They have involved a wide variety of food products, beverages, automobiles, drugs, medical devices, clothing, toys, household appliances, furniture, tools, sports equipment, consumer electronics and other goods/products. The reasons for these recalls vary from design defects, contamination and misbranding to unacceptable levels of potentially harmful substances contained in the products or their components.

Companies engaged in manufacturing, importing, exporting, wholesaling or retail sales of any products are well aware of the devastating consequences of product recalls such as direct financial costs, loss of consumer confidence, damaged reputation or loss of “brand” value and negative impact on shareholder value.
