Preventing Product Recalls
Preventing Product Recalls

This white paper informs manufacturers of the reasons and potential costs of product recalls. It details how these can be avoided and offers guidance on choosing the best solutions which can be incorporated into your product quality control programmes.

The cost of a product recall to a manufacturer can be immense – surveys of manufacturers conducted by Ernst and Young in 2011 saw 81% of respondents deem the financial risk of a product recall as “significant to catastrophic,” with an average estimated cost of $9-29 million.

As production speeds have increased, so too has the risk of defective products reaching retailer shelves. In addition, the movement toward a global market and growing consolidation of suppliers of raw materials has increased the potential scope of product recalls.

The white paper covers 5 main areas:

  1. What does a recall cost?
  2. What are the main reasons for recalls?
  3. How do you control the controllable?
  4. What is the best practice to minimize recalls?
  5. What do you need to research?

Effective rejection systems for non-conforming products is also essential for food manufacturers to comply with industry regulations such as the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the British Retail Consortium (BRC), Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000), the Chinese Food Safety Law and International Featured Standard for Food (IFS).

As this white paper illustrates, selecting the right reject system is crucial to maximise product safety and compliance. A large number of different types of reject devices and systems exist. Selecting the correct one for a specific application is vital to ensure the contaminated product is removed, to avoid damaging the product (as in some cases it may be possible to rework the whole or part of the product), reduce wastage of good product and minimise any negative impact on production downtime, for example broken packaging.
