Product recall research

Product Recall Research

In 2015 we undertook research into how prepared the sector was for product recalls.

The headline results

  • 18.5% of respondents did not have any product recall procedures in place.
  • 60% do not include product recalls in their contractual agreements with suppliers.
  • 20% of participants that confirmed a product recall plan was in place, stated that they do not test the plan with trial recalls. 
  • 73% of food and drink manufacturers and producers do not have media and communications protocols in place should a recall be required.
