Across the country, recalls are made on a daily basis. In 2011, the average number of recalls that were made each day totaled 6.5, and those involved all different types of consumer products, including food and medical products.
Manufacturers and retailers are worried that consumers are not being effectively notified of these recalls, and therefore could be in danger of becoming ill or injured as a result. This recall ‘tiredness’ is being experienced at the consumer level, as well as the business level in some cases.
Retailers and regulators are attempting to deploy these messages in other mediums in order to reach more individuals that could potentially be affected by the defective products. Social media, print, and telephones are all being considered as effective methods.
