FDA plays an important role in product recalls and its Direct Recall Classification (DRC) program helps get recall information to consumers in a timely manner.
Conducting a recall is an effective way for a firm to remove from the market a product that violates FDA regulations and is possibly dangerous, FDA advises firms on their recall strategies and monitors their recall to determine whether it is effective.
FDA also publicizes recalls so consumers and health professionals can find out what types of products are being recalled. Learn more by joining this FDA webinar.
