March 03, 2022- The FDA finalized guidance to help companies quickly and effectively remove recalled products from the market. The guidance describes steps companies should take before a recall is necessary, to develop recall policies and procedures that include training, planning, and record-keeping to reduce the time a recalled product is on the market and, thus, limit the public’s exposure to risk. A recalling company may act on its own initiative, or the FDA may inform the company that a distributed product violates the law and recommends recalling it. The FDA has the authority to require recalls. Because recalls can affect the entire supply chain, including downstream suppliers, wholesalers, or vendors, the FDA recommends that companies develop recall procedures to inform their entire distribution chain quickly. As a result, consignees can rapidly identify affected lots and recall downstream products when necessary. @ https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-urges-companies-be-recall-ready-protect-public-health-part-final-guidance-voluntary-recalls?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
