Topic Background:

The products regulated by the FDA can cause serious adverse health consequences or death. The FDA's recall program is designed to make sure firms' recalls can mitigate such problems, even when the adverse consequence seems remote. The FDA's recall program has remained relatively the same over several years. How the FDA and industry manage recalls and learn from their mistakes continues to evolve. In some ways recalls have become more efficient through the benefit of technology. In other ways the reason for recalls remains substantially the same. The FDA's recall procedures and regulatory management of any risk to health are still sufficient to determine whether a recall is effective and whether manufacturers learn from their mistakes.
