We all shudder to say that dreadful “R” word.  Recalls are costly and time-consuming to any organization, whether a manufacturer or distributor.  Whether the facility is the initiator or required to respond. Therefore, some organizations tend to delay the initiation of a recall or fail to respond to one.  The FDA recently published a Guidance Document to provide clarification to the FDA’s recommendations/ expectations when it comes to Recalls, press releases, or other public notifications that could impact public health and safety.
