Product Recall

The risk of product recall and/or contamination remains a severe exposure assumed by all stages of the supply chain.

A compromise in product safety can cause devastation for businesses. For companies offering goods to the public, even minor compromises of product integrity can have significant and potentially permanent consequences. For these businesses and their products, whether food, beverage, pharmaceuticals, finished goods, or their ingredients or component parts, the risk of product recall and/or contamination remains a severe exposure assumed by all stages of the supply chain.

The regulatory landscape in which product manufacturing businesses operate is in a state of rapid development; recently enacted food and product safety initiatives, as well as a newfound authority of governmental bodies tasked with their enforcement, have contributed to an environment of rising standards and rigid expectations. With today’s immediacy of information, any offense can reach millions of consumers in an instant. A dangerous product can breach the trust of customers and cause widespread and irreversible damage to a company’s brand and livelihood.
