13 Aug Overview of FDA Recall Process for Defective Products & Drugs (Part 2)
Picking up from Overview of FDA Recall Process for Defective Products & Drugs (Part 1), the following is some additional information regarding how the FDA goes about recalling products and/or medications that pose a significant threat to public safety. While Part 1 of this blog focused on describing how the FDA becomes aware that a recall may need to be initiated, here in Part 2, we will concentrate on what steps the FDA takes once it suspects that a product or medication may need to be pulled from the market.
Following the First Alert process, the following typically takes place:
- Issuing a public alert or warning – When a product or medication has been found to be a serious hazard to the public, the FDA will immediately take action to issue a public alert to warn as many people about the FDA recall as possible. To this end, the FDA may hold press conferences and publish press releases with various media organizations and on its own website.
- Effectiveness checks – Once the FDA has issued a public warning, it will work with the company that manufacturers the recalled product or medication to develop an effective plan for getting that product or medication out of circulation. The FDA will regularly review the efficacy of this plan and will only deem that a recall has been completed once all appropriate actions have been taken to get the dangerous or defective product out of circulation.
