Recalls Can Happen to Anyone

Recalls in the U.S. are increasing at a rate of approximately 10 percent per year. So it is safe to say that most companies will be impacted by a recall at some point. During the COVID-19 crisis, the risk of mistakes due to increased production and decreased staffing make a strong traceability and recall plan essential. With a recall plan in place, control of the situation can quickly be regained, mitigating long-term negative effect. In doing so, you can help keep consumers safe and strengthen your customer relationships.
