Consumers may be weary of numerous product recalls

Posted under Product Liability

An overwhelming number of recalls are being issued in the United States on a daily basis, and U.S. regulators are worried that consumers are becoming too inundated with these recalls, and will begin to soon tune them out.

In 2011, there was a total of 2,363 product recalls in the United States. This averages out to roughly 6.5 recalls per day during a calendar year. These recalls included food, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reveals that this is a 14 percent increase in recalls from 2010, where 2,081 were announced throughout the year. Regulators are having trouble reaching out to all consumers when a recall is issued, and are therefore effectively looking for new methods to relay this information.
