14 Product Recalls and Why They Were Issued #infographic

The term "recall" is dreaded by businesses, customers and investors. A recall is a request by a supplier to return a product after safety issues or product flaws have been found, possibly posing a risk to the customer or threat to legal action by the producer / seller. Environmental issues can also prompt a recall, as is the case with the 2015 Volkswagen scandal known as "Dieselgate," where the diesel engines emitted emissions up to 40 times higher than those allowed by US standards.

The cars had software which cheated emission tests. Although recalls are often the manufacturer's fault, they are often triggered by outsiders who are malicious and criminal. Tylenol was contaminated with cyanide in 1982 which resulted in seven people being killed. Johnson & Johnson have been recalling 31 million bottles. The tragedy resulted in the development of tamper-proof technology which exists today on all medicines. Reminiscences are terrifying but some good should come from them at least.
