"If you have never had a recall, you ain't selling enough!"
There can be numerous reasons for having a recall, especially for non-food consumer goods. In that world, most, if not all, of the quality systems are a mix of production-related quality control and random (AQL) based inspections. Even with inspections, as they are random, things can slip through. But there are things that you can do to minimise risks and impact. One of the "low-hanging fruits” when minimising risks and the impact of product recalls is ensuring that your artwork; product label, packaging artwork, manual/instructions, has no flaws.
This is low-hanging fruit not just for you, but also for market surveillance authorities. In some product categories, it has proven to be the case that in over 60% of the products with apparent flaws in markings, product labels, and manuals, there is also something non-compliant with products. Why is that? Because it requires dedication, focus, and ownership to create and maintain proper templates and information. It is a sign of process maturity. ProductIP is market leader when it comes to label checks.
